STEM-Robotics: Our students develop a sophisticated range of robotics skills which are embedded within STEM practices that include various maker technologies, coding platforms, and entrepreneurial endeavors.
Robotics is an interdisciplinary field that integrates computer science and engineering. Robotics involves design, construction, operation, and use of robots. The goal of robotics is to design machines that can help and assist humans. Robotics integrates fields of mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, information engineering, mechatronics, electronics, bioengineering, computer engineering, control engineering, software engineering, among others.
