We’ve had a lot of inquiries recently about getting kids involved in local STEM programs since Brickworld. The most often questions from parents are how do I get my kids involved in something more organized than a club or after school program and what in the world is ‘competitive robotics?’
First LEGO League robotics for youth 9-14 is already underway this season. The The Tampa Bay area has a great Regional Director, Desh Bagley. Information about how to get involved and form a team can be found at their website. http://www.suncoastfll.org
VEX IQ Robotics is another inexpensive robotics platform that was recently showcased at Brickworld. VEX IQ is for kids as young as 8 years old. Information about getting involved and starting a team can be found here. http://www.vexrobotics.com/vexiq/
Get involved this season!
