On November 4th, Penn Robotics attended Saturday Enrichment at Schmucker Middle School, where we outreached to elementary school students. We were invited to speak at the Mythbusters station, where students apply the scientific method to solve problems, or myths, of their choice. At this station, we gave a presentation about the scientific method and helped the students understand the practical uses of this process by relating it to our own robotics experiences. Afterwards we demonstrated our outreach robot to students at both the Mythbusters and PLTW: Inventors on the Loose stations and let each of the students have a chance to drive it.

Our involvement in this year’s Fall Enrichment series directly impacted over 50 students and developed their interest in STEM and joining the robotics teams at their respective schools. Many voiced their ignited enthusiasm in pursuing technical fields such as computer science and mechanical engineering. It is Penn Robotics’s mission to inspire the next generation of innovators and problem-solvers. We anticipate that the experiences and opportunities that we provide to younger students will lead to a more enriched community in the foreseeable future.
