Robotics and STEAM

Bridging the gap in science

Blugold Beginnings provides an extracurricular program for local elementary, middle and high schools to help students explore their interest in building and programming Lego Robots. Blugold Beginnings Robotics currently serves nine different schools in the area with groups of 15-60 students at each site. Within those nine schools, we mentor about 350 students. Our organization is funded through grants and donations. In order to continue benefiting the community, we are in need of funding to sustain our current program and reach our future goals.

Katie Albin, a fifth-grade teacher at an Eau Claire elementary school, was one of three teachers who were part of this summer’s Blugold Beginnings coding camp. She hopes to incorporate coding into her classroom.
