Using Hands-on Robotics Projects to Engage and Strengthen High School Students Participation in STEM

Abstract: This paper is authored by Andy S. Zhang, Iem Heng, Farrukh Zia, and Sidi Berri of the New York City College of Technology of CUNY.

This paper discusses the work that the Mechatronic Technology Center (MTC) in the School of Technology and Design of New York City College of Technology (City Tech) has done in the past two years to actively engage high school students in STEM education through hands-on robotic projects. Project-based hands-on robotic design activities are introduced at various levels. MTC offered these hands-on robotic design activities through after-school program, weekend workshops, and summer programs to maximize participation.
