The C-STEM program provides K-14 students with an exceptional opportunity of hands-on integrated learning of math and computer science with robotics. Computer programming and robotics are just the beginning. Students take the concepts they learn in their core classes and apply them to real life problems where they are challenged to think critically and come up with creative solutions.
As a UC Approved Educational Preparation Program, participation in the C-STEM program, C-STEM student individual and team awards, and C-STEM extracurricular activities are recognized in the UC admissions process as achievements that have explicitly prepared students for college and career.
Students can get involved in the C-STEM program through:
- classroom programs in your school
- afterschool programs in your school
- RoboPlay Video Competition through your school
- RoboPlay Challenge Competition through your school (held annually in May)
- C-STEM GIRL Camps in your school district
- C-STEM Youth Summer Camps
Various C-STEM awards and scholarships are available to middle and high school students.
If the C-STEM program is not available in your school, you may send links for C-STEM curriculum, benefits working with C-STEM Center, and the article “teaching math with computing” to your teachers, principal, superintendent, and president and members of the district board of education, and ask them to contact us and work together on bringing the C-STEM program to your school.
