We can't predict what the hot technology will be 5 years from now... but we can confidently predict that the team that designs it will include computer programmers, electronic embedded systems experts, and STEM literate engineers. The Fostering Innovation through Robotics Exploration project will provide robotics centered computer science/STEM training and resources to teachers, mentors, and students nationally significantly increasing the number of students studying computer programming, embedded systems, and engineering.

Future robotics innovation will be determined by the educational opportunities that we create today.
