12 Mar KC STEM Alliance Newsletter – March 2013
Here at the KC STEM Alliance we are privileged to spend many of our workdays surrounded by talented students, educators, mentors… and robots. We wrapped up the season for two robotics programs FIRST LEGO League for Grades 4-8 and FIRST TECH Challenge for Grades 7-12, and are now looking forward to the Seventh Annual Greater Kansas City Regional FIRST Robotics Competition, March 14-16 at Hale Arena, Grades 9-12. In this edition, learn more about upcoming events, like the Project Lead the Way Senior Showcase in April at Union Station and learn how you can take a Special Guest tour of the FIRST Robotics Competition at Hale Arena in March! We are hopeful that more students in the Kansas City region get involved in STEM at an early age, and create their own opportunity, like Sunita Gupta (pictured right), Design Certification Engineer at Garmin since 2008. Sunita is spotlighted as KC STEM Alliance’s Create Your Own Opportunity campaign through STEM.
