NextTech (Kids and Bots)

NextTech

The objective of NextTech is to introduce middle school students to the collaboration, innovation, and professionalism of robotics. Students will work in teams to build and code robots using kits tailored for their age group. Throughout the course students will interact with various sensors and visual based programming to create autonomous robot codes. At the end of the course, teams will demonstrate their robot designs, programming, and teamwork while participating in a fun and exciting robot game. NextTech will inspire students to use their creativity and provide a glance into the world of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM). Further, the students will be exposed to careers in applied robotics, such as agricultural technology, smart farms, and sustainability monitoring.
