Milford Students Learn STEM Concepts with Robots 

It was Robotics 101 for some Milford students Friday.

Middle schoolers at the Lewis Libby School learned how to construct and program robots.

They used Lego Mindstorms robotics.

A faculty member from NESCom at Husson University was there to teach them.

It was all part of the school’s STEM program.

“A lot of these kids love hands on stuff and this gives them the ability to do the hands on technology and they don’t even realize they’re doing math,” said Laura Gurney, assistant professor.

Organizers say it’s a way to engage students in a fun and less intimidating atmosphere.
