ARE YOU READY TO BECOME NEXT GENERATION?
Robotics Academy is an exciting, five-night experience that will put the next generation of engineers, designers and gear heads to the ultimate test!
The program incorporates real-world applications of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). Middle school trainees learn what it’s like to engineer and design robotics on land, in the air and underwater. Trainees are immersed in teamwork and leadership skills in a simulated business environment where winning proposal teams design and build robots. The activities equip trainees with modern knowledge and prepare them to be future space and research leaders.
