WHat Does it mean to "change the story?"
TO CHANGE STEAM CULTURE IN INNER CITY COMMUNITIES BY CELEBRATING ROBOTICS IN AREAS WITHOUT EXPOSURE.
STEAM education is slowly becoming integrated in many schools, programs and curriculums, however barriers still exist in these fields. STEAM is still a luxury for many first-generation Americans, children living in poverty, and inner city youth. These students still have trouble finding opportunities and exposure, even in a place like New York. We would know, because for many of us that was our story.
As a team made up of inner city kids, STEAM careers were and robotics were the last things on our minds. Thats why we started this campaign. So our neighbors, friends, and community could take part in the STEAM community.
