The SER Robotics Program is designed to enhance students’ Academic, Technical, and Leadership skills in order to attain educational success. The Robotics Program is intended to stimulate the interest in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM), and Art. The goal is to encourage students to attend college and pursue STEM/STEAM degrees.
This program will stimulate students’ interest in STEM/STEAM by hands-on Science and Engineering activities and through a variety of conference motivational speakers. The program will introduce students, beginners through expert, to the exciting world of Robotics through building, designing, modifying and testing robots.
Students were provided a kit to build a robot. This first robot was the seed for their individual creativity. Each student, upon completion, had a chance to test their robots in an Arena. After, students competed with their robots in groups of 2 to 8 robots.
Student applied basic Physics and Engineering, to improve their Robots and tried to make them stronger, faster and more robust.
Each student designed their own Robot and presented it to the other teams in a highly interactive manner.
1. Students applied basic Engineering and Physics concepts.
2. Stimulated enthusiasm and a positive attitude towards academic excellence
3. Increased interest in careers in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics, and Art
