Held at the local Warren Township Public Library, the STEMBots program is a weekly, Trident Robotics member hosted class with the goal of giving younger children the opportunity to build, design, and program machines using the Lego Mindstorms EV3 kits and accompanying in-depth education. The program has students assemble certain versions of the kits with different sets of sensors and motors, and learn how to use them to their advantage in the accompanying program, following certain predetermined paths, following paths through outside input, and accomplishing different tasks which are all small-scale versions of the real-world machines. Children are both learning and being well entertained in this hands-on class that shows them that the things they learn can have real world applications
