History

Only 16% of American high school seniors are proficient in mathematics and interested in a STEM career, according to the US Department of Education, and only 30% of high school seniors who took the ACT were cleared for college-level sciences. By implementing STEM education training, Metro Homeschool Robotics, Inc. fosters the advancement of students to be competitive in a tech-intensive future. STEM fields are considered the core underpinnings of an advanced society by the United States National Research Council and the National Science Foundation. Robotics integrates all of the STEM fields in a way no other subject can compare. By 2020, the demand for STEM professionals will add over 1 million new STEM jobs within the United States workforce, and Metro Homeschool Robotics, Inc. is committed to preparing qualified individuals to meet this challenge. For eight years, MHR has provided students real-world STEM experience through robotics, including attaining leadership skills by the leading of meetings and sub-teams and knowing their budgets. Mentors guide the students and monitor for safety and keeping things on track. Middle and high school students compete in the BEST (Boosting Engineering, Science, & Technology) Competition in the fall. BEST promotes the Engineering Design Process and technological literacy. In the spring, FIRST® Robotics Competition (FRC) provides high school students with a robotics competition that gives real-world engineering experience. Throughout the school year, elementary and middle school students compete in the FIRST® LEGO® League (FLL), which introduces younger team members to engineering challenges using LEGO® Mindstorms to complete them-based tasks.
