i.am Angel and Mr. Robot Welcome Students Back to Campus

With the steady pace of vaccinations and California transitioning into less restrictive tiers, we’re happy to report that some of our students are returning to learning on campus.

Last week we helped to welcome students back at the Boyle Heights STEM Magnet High School with a special guest: Mr Robot, a 5ft tall robot assembled of Tetrix robotics parts and motors which make its head, arms, hands and feet move, donated by our partners PITSCO Education. 

Students in Boyle Heights and throughout LAUSD are stepping foot inside the classroom for the first time since March of 2020. This is a big milestone in returning to normalcy, with some of these students being 9th graders and walking inside their school campus for the first time.

Having Mr. Robot greet and welcome students back is also a reminder that our students will have opportunities in STEM education and STEM programs to look forward to. If things continue to move in this direction, it won’t be long until we see these students building robots and coding inside the classroom with their peers again. 

Students have been through quite the year, but with your help they’ll pick up right where they left off.
