Description

Introduction to United Robotics

Whoever said, “science, technology, engineering, and math can’t be fun”, never played with robots. At Innovation Tech we are “programmed” for fun and you and your students and community can be too!

United Robotics is a school-based or community-based robotics club for individuals, in grades 3 - 12) with intellectual disabilities, physical disabilities, and their non-typical peers.

Dedicated to creating robotics experiences to provide individuals with disabilities opportunities to make new friends, find new hobbies, learn new skills, and develop independence.

The Introduction to United Robotics workshop is for teachers, parents, youth mentors, scout leaders, or anyone else who is interested to learn how robotics can be used to create fun and exciting inclusive Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) educational experiences. No prior robotics experience required.
