Throughout September and October, the Bionic Bruins visited elementary schools in the area in order man STEAM Nights put on by the Union elementary school district. This allowed us to expose students to the world of robotics and spark an interest in engineering at an early age.
Here at the Bionic Bruins, we know the importance of giving kids a chance to interact with robots. With the growing importance of tech jobs, students need to be comfortable with technology and curious about new concepts.
Even though most of the students had never touched a robot before, they were quick to learn. Even those who were a little unsure at first rose quickly to the occasion, with smiles spreading across their faces as they navigated robots around the room.
Other students built their own robots with the help of Bionic Bruins members– and more than one parent asked, “When can my child do this again?”
