Medibotics: The Merging of Medicine, Robotics and IT

SUMMARY

Sixty teachers from high-minority urban schools in New Jersey integrate robotics programming, engineering design and information technology into existing curricula for grades 7-12; students engage in ten robotics activities involving computer


DESCRIPTION

The New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) is working with faculty, students and staff in four high-minority urban school districts in New Jersey to integrate robotics programming, engineering design and information technology into existing curricula for grades 7-12. The goal of the project is to enlarge the number of students from underrepresented groups who are interested in pursuing IT and STEM careers by engaging secondary students in ten robotics activities that involve computer programming to solve grade-appropriate biomedical engineering problems.
