More on Robotics...

Computer Science teaches logic, problem-solving, and creativity, and robotics is a popular way many children and teens are introduced to Computer Science (CS). Computing skills are in demand in every industry and every state, which is why every child should have access to computer science education, including robotics. With enough educators teaching Computer Science, we can equip our students with the skills and knowledge necessary to thrive in a technical society. This is why USC Viterbi K-12 STEM Center provides scholarships to K-12 teachers new to CS to attend's professional training and join our learning community, if they teach in a school serving under-resourced students. Check out our website and those of our partners to learn why CS Equity is our passion.
