RoboBees students and growingSTEMS Co-Founder Tim Serge traveled to Mechanicsville for a show and tell with elementary school students. They even brought along a robot from 2009.
Mechanicsville, MD –The RoboBees, a FIRST robotics team based in Leonardtown, showcased their 2009 robot “Pele” at the Mechanicsville Elementary School career day. Mentors and students of the team interacted with students, explaining the inner-workings of the robot and how their schooling applies to the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. The event is organized by Gina Bonsignore, a counselor at the Mechanicsville Elementary School. The program has been successful in introducing students to various careers, ranging from farming, health services, military, science and technology, and engineering. Each year, approximately community members volunteer their time to discuss their career choice and how students can work hard to achieve their goals.
