Grant Means More Robots for Students Use

Presentation_St. Mary's has received a $1,000 STEM grant from The Greater Omaha Chapter of the Armed Forces Communications and Electronics Association (AFCEA) for noteworthy science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) programs in the Omaha Metropolitan area. The grants are awarded to middle and high school science teachers to be used for supplies and/or equipment for their classrooms. Mrs. Sweeting was awarded the grant December 11, 2014 at the AFCEA's annual Holiday Mixer. She will use the grant money to buy 3 CEENBoT robots for the middle school STEM program. Students will have the opportunity to program the robots and explore different ways robots are currently used as well as possible future uses. The programming of robots supports St. Mary's technology program's goal of introducing students to different aspects of computer science, including programming, game development, robots, and emerging technologies in order to help students understand how these technologies work and how they can ultimately be customized for even greater functionality.
