According to the US Department of Commerce.  “STEM workers drive our nation’s innovation and competitiveness by generating new ideas, new companies and new industries. However, U.S. businesses frequently voice concerns over the supply and availability of STEM workers. Over the past 10 years, growth in STEM jobs was three times as fast as growth in non-STEM jobs.”

Robotics

On November 3, 2017, After School Kindergarteners through 3rd graders had a chance to participate in the Junior Robotics Competition. The competition’s theme this year was water conservation. There were three parts to the competition – coding, team building, and project presentations. School teams were judged in all three areas; however, the presentations carried the most weight. Teams were required to create a presentation based on how water travels, how water is being used, and how we can conserve it. Participants were also required to create a robot that will help water conservation. In the end, Baldwin Academy took 1st place with the highest overall score, followed by Nelson Elementary in 2nd, and Sparks Elementary in 3rd
