We currently offer intensive teacher training followed by a weeklong, STEM-robotics course that is taught by the local teachers alongside The Community Bots educators. Our introductory Fun with Robotics course trains middle school girls in the fundamentals of robot design and programming using LEGO Mindstorms NXT and EV3 software and equipment. The course also exposes the girls to leading robotics companies and their innovative products and highlights women who have distinguished themselves in the STEM-robotics field.
The Community Bots was founded to provide training in STEM-robotics for middle school girls in underserved communities and their teachers in New York City and around the world. The founders, who are educators in New York City, understand the importance of learning STEM-robotics and the impact it has on the confidence, strength, and academic success of girls. As educators, they have extended their passion in the field of science and technology to leading an after-school robotics program. As leaders in their field, they participated in the FIRST LEGO League (FLL) and RoboCup Junior competitions, national and international programs. With their unique perspective and hands-on experience as a guide, The Community Bots was born.
We believe that empowering girls and young women to pursue STEM careers begins in the classroom, and this age is an impressionable time in life recognized as a turning point.
