The robotics program is part of the Bridge Project's evidence-based STEM learning program. The robotics program is designed to further robot development and challenge teams to learn about electronics, The Bridge Project is seeking to send 15 youth from its Westwood site, to compete in the Colorado Space Grant Consortium Robotics Challenge in Alamosa, CO.
In partnership with the Binning Foundation, The Bridge Project students have been fortunate to have been working with Dr. Knecht, Emeritus Professor, Design (EPICS), Colorado School of Mines, for 12 years. Dr. Knecht works with the students two days a week during the school year in hopes to prepare the students for the Challenge. Not only is this an incredible opportunity for our youth living in and around one of four Denver public Housing communities where Bridge delivers its services, but because this is the first group of middle-schoolers to attempt the challenge. Dr. Knecht is confident in their skills and abilities so help us give these kids an opportunity of a lifetime!
The Need: By donating today, you will support our effort to send Bridge Project students to this competition and our STEM learning program. The support raised will contribute towards lodging, transportation, travel expenses and the supplies to compete.
Help us provide our students with this once in a life-time experience and the opportunity to learn new skills.
