Massachusetts National Guard STEM Initiatives
For future scientists and engineers, the typical classroom often is not enough. Recognizing this, we are proud to be able offer our Urban Search & Rescue Robotics Challenge to them at no-cost. We can send you all of the photos, videos, and information you need to see what our STEM Programs can do for you and your students.
This Tetrix Kit, used extensively by SkillsUSA, consists of heavy-duty, aircraft-grade aluminum elements, powerful drive motors, and wireless cameras. The event challenges competitors to engineer a robot which can navigate a unique obstacle course to locate and remove an object within a specified time. Recognizing that no two districts or curricula are identical, we designed this set to be usable by any sized group with any possible time considerations. We can conduct days of in-depth design and construction or simply allow students to navigate our courses with pre-built machines.
The Massachusetts National Guard is a locally-based organization which places the heaviest of emphases on educating our members and the betterment of our communities. We offer training in a wide variety of STEM career fields and feature unique benefits which allow our members to attend college 100% free of tuition or academic fees!
