• Automation and Robotics is a part of the STEM program. STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. Within this class, the students will move from "problem solving with structured activities and progress to open-ended problems and projects that require them to develop planning, documentation, communication and other professional skills. The students will use the VEX Robotics platform to design, build, and program real-world objects such as traffic lights, toll booths, and robotic arms."
