Be Good Do Good
Our mission is to popularize and proliferate STEM and STEAM Education providing facilities for learning to children.
18 children (three teams) signed up for this year's AZ FLL competition. This year's effort is led by Dr. Anna Prakash Ph. D. Two teams qualified for the state level competition.
The laboratory in Arizona is equipped with Intel Edison platform and Arduino 101 Board with sensor kits, LEGO robotic kits, 3D Printer and Drones to teach students how to build/program IOT devices/robots/drones and use 3d printers.
Three Intel Edison classes offered from the library will teach how to program using arduino and node.js and build home automation systems.
Our teams are regularly participating in AZFLL competition and we can make the learning experience lot of fun.
We have done many experiments involving Intel Edison and sensors - we can show you how to set up the boards and sensors and get started.
