Ronan Robotics Shines On!

Written by Bill Laurienti

In May, we shared that the robotics team from Ronan High School SmartLab in Montana were named world champions.

Now we learn that Ronan has received an invitation to exhibit their winning design in the Smithsonian Institution. The robot will be featured in an interactive exhibit this spring called Math Alive.

This great news comes as the Ronan robotics program has become so popular that SmartLab Facilitator, Jesse Gray, has had to split the group into two teams.

Additionally, Montana State University is looking to enroll students from the Ronan SmartLab HQ in their robotics program.

Congrats to the entire team at Roman High School.

Case Study

Going beyond STEM to teach essential skills

When the team at Jewell Houston Academy, a magnet school in Texas, looked for a STEM program, they wanted one that would not only engage students in STEM careers but could also teach conflict-resolution, problem-solving, collaboration, and communication skills.
