As part of UBTECH Education’s commitment to equity in robotics and engineering instruction, the organization today launched a competitive grant to provide two years of free robotics kits, curriculum, and professional development to K–12 schools systems interested in integrating robotics instruction into STEM programs.
The Early Innovator grant program will award a cohort of geographically and demographically diverse school systems that can make a two-year commitment to implementing the company’s award-winning UKIT solution in their classrooms. Founded on UBTECH’s industry-leading robotics experience and research base, the UKIT was developed by experts who helped write the NGSS. It merges modular robotics construction with engineering, math, and language arts, as well as physical and life sciences. Information on Early Innovator grants, as well as a link to apply for the program, can be found here.
Grant applications will be accepted through July 31, and UBTECH Education plans to announce the cohort of awardees in mid-August. Learn more here.
