Mission

West Suburban STEM provides Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) activities for school age children. Such activities include sponsoring robotics, math or computer science teams. Participants will be learning not only engineering and design skills, but will also be developing leadership, business, public speaking, coaching and communication skills. We will supply equipment, registration fees, travel and lodging to events and participate in fundraising activities to support these teams and promote STEM activities to the local community.

Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

FTC Team 10836

We sponsor a First Tech Challenge team. The FIRST Tech Challenge (FTC) is designed for students in grades 7–12 to compete head to head, using a sports model. Teams are responsible for designing, building, and programming their robots in a 10-week build period to compete in an alliance format against other teams.

Population(s) Served

We sponsor a 4-H Robotics Special Interest (SPIN) Robotics club. The club is limited to 5th through 8th grade children. The children are taught simple programming, and engineering. They build their own robot and program it to perform tasks autonomously.

Population(s) Served

Beginning in the 2019/2020 season we will begin shifting our middle school program to the VEX IQ Challenge. Skills will be similar to the other robotics programs, but should provide a better learning path into the FIRST Tech Challenge program.
