Closing the STEM skills gap
Recognizing the growing demand for a local skilled technical workforce, Miami EdTech and Riders.ai have partnered to bring Computer Science and Robotics Programming to middle and high schools. Thanks to the support of Microsoft, students were able to receive prizes and a pizza party as part of the inaugural competition.
After the 3-day hackathon, five students from Ms. Garcia’s two classes placed in the top 10 and were given an award along with with gift cards for their placement in the Give Miami Day Riders Robotics Competition! We look forward to hosting this again next year – stay tuned!
