At the South Dakota Robotics Association, we feel that every child has the capacity for science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). So much technology swirls around us everyday, phones and music players, book readers and computers. We're a plugged-in society. Kids are losing an interest in STEM, viewing it as too hard. SDRA combats this disinterest in science by making it fun. Actually, it takes little to make science fun - very quickly the kids realize the intrinsic value and fun in doing and learning by experiment. Although it sounds tough, engineering really is exciting, and worthwhile...
We are excited to announce that EmBe (formerly the YWCA) in Sioux Falls will be taking over the administration of the FLL program and our various workshops. What does this mean for you? A great experience with a fabulous group of volunteers and staff and EmBe who have pledged to make robotics as visible as their other youth programs. For information on robotics events with EmBe, visit embe.org and check out their "Youth Programs" tab!
SDRA will be working to coordinate between the various robotics programs around the state to ensure that all kids, no matter where they live in SD have access to STEM activities for their age group! Stay tuned for new partnerships and programs as we go down this new road!
