INTRO TO ROBO
Introduction to Robotics, a.k.a. "Intro to Robo,” is a program developed to introduce at-risk foster youth to career opportunities in Science, Technology, Engineering, Agriculture, Arts, and Mathematics, (S.T.E.A.M.). By stimulating interest in education and bringing awareness to new career opportunities, children will gain more self-confidence and leadership skills. Currently, 50% of foster youth drop out of high school. In an effort to reduce that number, the event helps motivate children to improve their school performance and develop S.T.E.A.M. skills that can create future jobs that bring them meaning.
