MIT and FIRST Ally To Encourage STEM Education Careers — Campus Technology

This is an interesting development — MIT has allied with the FIRST robotics competition to offer afterschool robotics courses in K-12, by using their alums.

In an effort to inspire K-12 students to pursue science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) education, as well as careers in the field, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) has formed a strategic alliance with FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology), a nonprofit dedicated to building interest in STEM-related education via innovative means. The cornerstone of the alliance is a pilot program to teach robotics to K-12 students after school.
