Rackspace Hosting Donation Enables Students To Attend Alamo Colleges’ Robotics Camps

Thanks to generous support from Rackspace, Time Warner Cable and the Texas Workforce Commission, 232 local elementary, middle school and high school students will be able to attend the Alamo Colleges' Space TEAMS summer robotics camps this year. The camps will take place at all five of the Alamo Colleges and a public performance/presentation will be held on the final day of each camp.

Rackspace's $50,000 donation will fund the purchase of laptops, robot kits and software, plus pay for staff, allowing 120 students who will be entering 4th trough 6th grade this fall to participate. A majority of these students will be from groups under-represented in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) areas. Eligibility status for the Federal Free or Reduced Fee school lunch program will be used as the standard for enrollment.

Time Warner Cable, for the third year in a row, is providing scholarships for 36 middle school student to attend the robotics camps at Northwest Vista College, St. Philip's College and Northeast Lakeview College. The funds are provided as part of Time Warner's Connect a Million Minds (CAMM) initiative. The Texas Workforce Commission is also providing funding for 24 high school students to attend Space TEAMS summer robotics camps at each of these same colleges. Northwest Vista College is partnering with the Girl Scouts and the Young Women’s Leadership Academy of the San Antonio Independent School District for the high school teen girl camp. Northeast Lakeview College is partnering with Boysville for its high school camp.

The Space TEAMS program began at Northwest Vista College in the summer of 2006 and operates under the direction of Andrew Schuetze, Northwest Vista College director of the Texas Institute for Educational Robotics (TIER). The SpaceTEAMS Robotics program is a fun and interactive hands-on experience that gives participants a chance to design and build robots. Successful robot builders must employ mechanical, electrical and software engineering, systems thinking, creativity and teamwork to succeed in their efforts. As students learn to design and build their robots, the hope is that they will become interested in STEM education and careers. The program specifically targets students who are traditionally underrepresented in STEM career fields.
