New Partnership Will Deliver STEM Content Via Extracurricular Activities

A new partnership will deliver robotics and computer science content to students via extracurricular activities focused on science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). Robomatter, which supplies research-based STEM content to schools, will partner with Engineering for Kids, which has a wide variety of programs for students ages 4-14 intended to introduce them to science, math and engineering concepts.

Engineering for Kids finds entertaining ways to deliver STEM-related content to children via a number of different classes, camps, clubs and parties. Robomatter, on the other hand, provides a computer science and robotics curriculum integrated with technology intended to teach foundational concepts, processes and principles, along with professional development to help teachers with the content.

Engineering for Kids, which uses classes, camps, clubs and parties, will now use content provided by Robomatter.

Beginning this spring, Robomatter will use the avenues to children provided by Engineering for Kids to provide its STEM-related content.

"My dream is that Engineering for Kids reaches as many communities as possible, inspiring the next generation of young and inquiring minds," said Engineering for Kids CEO and Founder Dori Roberts. "This is giving our students even more opportunities to explore robotics and software engineering in a real-world environment."

"Engineers are critical to our future, and that is one of the main reasons our educational solutions are focused on the technology and engineering aspects of STEM," said Robomatter President and CEO Skip Smith. "We're excited to partner with Engineering for Kids to make quality, research-based STEM education available to students throughout the U.S. and North America."
