Eci vex robotics league

Working with schools and non-profit partners, the VEX robotics league will provide the opportunity for students to build STEM skills through hands-on learning in the classroom and beyond. In the VEX Robotics Competition, teams of students are tasked with designing and building a robot to play against other teams in a game-based engineering challenge. Contact us for more information about teacher training, shared practice fields and start-up grants.

 

I AM THE FUTURE OF WORK is a career campaign that gives students an up-close and un-scripted look at local career opportunities in high-growth, high-demand job fields. With guidance from our Future of Work Advisory Team and Muncie Community Schools, this pilot project was developed to give a real-life face to STEM-based jobs and help connect students with educational opportunities starting at their local high schools.
