Aggie FIRST Robotics

Aggie FIRST Robotics is dedicated to promoting engineering education and fostering community in undergraduate Texas A&M students and K-12 students around Texas. Although we are open to any interested students, most members are alumni of the FIRST Robotics competition, a series of robotics competitions for elementary, middle, and high school students. Our mission is to continue the mission of FIRST into college, providing members with technical, professional, and social growth through engineering design challenges, skills training, leadership opportunities, and meeting other like-minded individuals. In addition, we want to give back to the FIRST community, helping the next generation of students receive the same opportunities that we were fortunate enough to receive.

Connected STEM: Promoting STEM Education through Connected Devices and Building Automation

Connected STEM: Promoting STEM Education through Connected Devices and Building Automation is a NSF-funded collaborative research project that is promoting STEM through the use of building automation applications, connected devices (commonly called the Internet of Things), and additive manufacturing (known as 3D printing). This project will systematically evaluate the effect of authentic experiential learning activities related to engineering design on students’ interests, skills, knowledge, and career aspirations. As part of the Connected STEM project, the Texas A&M College of Engineering is hosting a two-week summer institute for educators who teach grades 3-8. During the summer institute selected teachers will learn about the product development process, design and manufacturing of components using additive manufacturing technologies, and the development and programming of connected electronic devices.
