“This program utilizes the coolness of robotics and the excitement of head to head competition to inspire and engage students.  The students will walk through the design and build a mobile robot to play a sport-like game.  During this process, they will learn the key STEM (Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics) principles and robotic concepts,” says Fr. Rich McAuliff, principal of Mindszenty High School.

“We are very happy to endorse such program,” says President Tommy Remengesau Jr. “We see very good practical applications in the use of robotics and research in our country and we are hoping to see some of our young people pursue their education in the fields of engineering and related fields that are needed here in Palau.” [/restrict]
