Grant Allows 72 Underserved Children to Participate in Robotics Camp

The Texas Workforce Commission granted $36,590 to the Space TEAMS Summer Robotics Program. The funds will support camps at three of the Alamo Colleges (Northwest Vista College, Northeast Lakeview College, and St. Philip’s College) to serve middle and high school underrepresented and underserved populations. These funds will pay for scholarships for children to attend the Summer Robotics Program. The Colleges have each identified a community group that will benefit from the scholarships; Northeast Lakeview College is working with Boysville, Northwest Vista College is working with Girls Scouts of Southwest Texas and the Young Women’s Leadership Academy of SAISD, St. Philip’s College is working with the Boys and Girls Clubs of San Antonio. The funds will provide scholarships and a robotics experience for approximately 72 underserved children.

“The Summer Robotics program is a great opportunity for young kids to get excited about science, technology, engineering and math (STEM),” said TWC Chairman Andres Alcantar. “The students will spend a week working hands-on to build robots, while building camaraderie and teamwork with their peers through hard work and challenges helping prepare them for future success.”

The camp allows students to work in small teams guided by teachers and teacher assistants and is intended to generate interest in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) education. Robots from each group will compete in mini-challenges, as well as a final exhibition.

“Robotics Summer Camp will offer our children something special, says Lt. Gen. David McIlvoy, Boysville chief executive officer. “It will provide them challenging and stimulating academic and personal growth in a fun-filled format with their peers. The program complements our Boysville educational programs, and our transition program of preparing children for adulthood and guiding them toward meaningful college and vocational opportunities”.

“We appreciate the funding we received,” says Dr. Eric Reno, NLC president. “NLC can expand its Robotics Program from just elementary and middle school participants to now include high school students.”

Northeast Lakeview College offers Robotics Summer Camps for elementary, middle, and high school students in addition to other summer youth camps. For more details on this or any other youth program or for registration information, visit the webpage
