Robotics @ Eastgate

Imaginative thinking and teamwork build tomorrow’s Innovators…

Students apply science, engineering, and math concepts, plus a big dose of imagination, to develop solutions to real-world challenges. They also design, build, and program LEGO MINDSTORMS® and WeDo based robots to perform autonomous “missions” on a playing field. Along the way, they develop critical thinking, team-building, and presentation skills.

The positive impact of Robotics on participants is gratifying and well documented. According to FIRSTOver 88% are more interested in doing well in school, and 87% have more interest in attending college.
