Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM): four of the most important concepts in education, yet some of the most difficult to teach in an engaging manner. Robotics is an appealing method used to teach STEM concepts in a way that can be applied to a myriad of fields of study, ranging from psychology to computer sciences. Over the course of the last semester, a research team has worked to create a robot to compete at the International Technology and Engineering Educators Association (ITEEA) national robotics competition. Although the Fort Hays State University’s team received 3rd overall, this does not compare to the knowledge and experience gained in the STEM field through robotics.
