President Obama has articulated a clear priority for STEM education: within a decade, American students must "move from the middle to the top of the pack in science and math." The Obama Administration also is working toward the goal of fairness between places, where an equitable distribution of quality STEM learning opportunities and talented teachers can ensure that all students have the chance to study and be inspired by science, technology, engineering, and math—and have the chance to reach their full potential.
“[Science]“ is more than a school subject, or the periodic table, or the properties of waves. It is an approach to the world, a critical way to understand and explore and engage with the world, and then have the capacity to change that world..."
President Barack Obama, March 23, 2015
Robotics is a constant opportunity to solve problems. The combination of engineering and software problems and solutions creates a dynamic environment that helps participants develop problem-solving skills than involve math, engineering, physics, and logic as they work toward tangible goals.

IOT MAKER TUTORING
Technology will always have a place in education. It is very easy to envision how IoT capabilities can be used in STEM programs, robotics and anything having to do with gathering specific data points. It’s all in the potential. IoT can simplify and automate access to information. This saves teachers and students time and effort. But it is ultimately the educator who needs to be able to identify the right technology and integrate it properly in the classroom for education to evolve.

3D DESIGN & PRINTING
“3D printing has the potential to
revolutionize the way we make almost everything.
The next industrial revolution in
manufacturing will happen in America.”
— PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA
All hardware depends on software to run and execute the actions you intended, therefore if you are interested in IoT, Robotics, Minecraft or combing these specialties, you will need to understand programming. We will provide the fundamentals of variables, loops, conditional statements and more as you learn to progam using tools such as Scratch, Python, Arduino, Visual Studio and more.
