NREC Robotics Academy activities include sponsoring the First Lego League tournament (above), partnering with LEGO and others to produce an extensive range of middle and high school robotic curricula, and supporting a variety of community outreach initiatives.
In keeping with CMU’s mission as an academic leader, NREC also operates fun, educational outreach programs for young people. The Robotics Academy involves students, grades 5 through 12, in a wide variety of projects – such as building small robots – which helps kids learn principles of math, science, engineering, physics, teamwork and creative problem solving. Extensive programs for professional development of teachers are also offered.
