Downingtown Area Robotics in Downingtown Pennsylvania, is a group of Students, Mentors and Sponsors, focused in getting students interested in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) based careers. We facilitate this through numerous activities garnering these skills and knowledge. The most important would be the Robotics Competitions. From the beginning, we teach each roboteer valuable skills including: critical thinking, communications, organization, teamwork, creativity, and collaboration. We also bring in STEM knowledge in areas of electronics, mechanics, pneumatics, programming, designing, building and rebuilding, prototyping, and mathematics.
