Program Description

This fun educational workshop and challenge is offered by Massachusetts National Guard and sponsored by STEM Starter Academy at STCC.

Coding and programming are critical STEM skills currently in high demand. Coding ability gives new perspective to problem-solving and critical thinking. This event introduces students to the fundamentals of Coding, Programming and Robotics in a fun way. Students will program their own Robot using the Tetrix kit in teams. This Tetrix Kit is used extensively by Skills-USA, consists of heavy-duty aircraft-grade aluminum elements, powerful drive motors, and wireless cameras. This event challenges teams to create a Robot that can navigate a unique obstacle course to locate and remove an object within a specified time.
