For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology Eagle Robotics program originated 15 years ago. The inspiration came from the region’s innovation and development within the aerospace industry and the commitment of the STEM professionals to create awareness and interest in STEM fields. They continue to learn and build on the lessons of previous teams and by working as a unit that encourages a team mentality where every individual is important to getting the job done. The robot is the end result of a journey that allows students to apply, fail and excel while learning valuable lessons that will aid them as they pursue their education and career goals.
