Science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education is more important than ever in this high-tech, fast-paced world. Schools all over the world are revolutionizing the way they teach by incorporating technology and engineering across the entire curriculum. STEM focuses on problem-solving and exploratory learning by encouraging students to work in teams to actively engage in challenges and discover solutions. Robots allow students to connect theory with practice and discover a wide range of robotics-related fields, such as computer science, engineering, and mathematics. This program, aims to attract students and parents by offering a curriculum that includes the latest technological advances in a fun and accessible manner. Whatever career paths students take; a humanoid robot can lead the way! Students gain hands-on experience using a humanoid robot, and, when used in the lab, they will discover exciting topics such as locomotion, grasping, audio and video signal processing, voice recognition, and much more.
Our students are a mix of different styled learners who need stimulation and alternatives to the traditional textbook. Most of our students are technologically restricted because of their lack of finances. We are always looking for innovative ways to engage our students. We also try to find novel ways to incorporate technology in the classroom and into our lessons. We believe that hands-on-inquiry based learning, using technology, is the best and easiest way to reach the students of today. We strive to utilize multiple tools and techniques to infuse STEM content into the acquisition of these skills.
Google Ignite Program partnership with FIU
- Established August 2016
- Students learn how to write computer codes, program humanoid robots and compete in District and community STEM competitions
Exploring the Frost Science Museum
- November 2017
- Classroom science lessons come to life in the museum through inclusive educational experiences.
- Students have now mastered and moved beyond block coding and are progressing towards beginning the Python, HTML/CSS curricula on code.org
