U.S. High School students have not fared well in science and mathematics globally. Many students from smaller and less wealthy countries are holding competitive edges over American students and have ranked higher in those fields in recent years. U.S. workers have therefore been entering a globalized market with competitive disadvantages in science and mathematics comparative to many other countries. Our education is now placing increased priority on S.T.E.A.M. education (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) to bolster our schooling curriculum while instilling a generation that is better equipped to compete and create drastic advances in S.T.E.A.M.
One strategy for expanding the importance of S.T.E.A.M. education is by providing expert, quality programs that provide students with the opportunity to design, program, and construct using rudimentary robotic mechanics. Eyes On The Prize Tutoring strives to make this program as engaging and fulfilling as possible for your child. We encourage you to learn more about this program by clicking on the "Robotics Information" link to the right.
