As far as youth robotics organizations in Delaware go, STEMRobotics, a nonprofit established in Wilmington by Foster Schucker in 2015, is new to the scene, but it’s making a big impact.
Six libraries in Delaware — Route 9 Innovation Center, Brandywine Hundred, Bear, Newark, Claymont, and Hockessin — offer STEMRobotics teams that are free to join. That’s no small feat, at a time when robotics have often been financially out of reach for many kids. Other teams based in schools and clubs like 4H are spread across the state, with over 60 elementary-school teams and 54 middle- and high-school teams. Most are VEX-based.
“We’re on track to meet our goal of 200 robots in Delaware by 2020,” said Schucker, who cofounded STEMRobotics in Pennsylvania with Steve Rhoads in 2009, before relocating to Delaware.
