EV3EVERYWHERE is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization based out of Plano, Texas, that was conceived after students looking to compete in robotics competitions faced overwhelming hurdles. EV3EVERYWHERE was created so that anyone with an interest in robotics could pursue a quality education through reinventing how young minds pursue Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics.
We are dedicated to providing access to technology used in STEM education to all students around the world by developing curriculum and labs that reduce the need to purchase expensive equipment while retaining the aspects that draw young minds to STEM. Developing critical thinkers and improving scientific literacy early on in students’ lives will enable them to achieve more than their counterparts. STEM careers help bring about innovations that not only sustain our current economy but also push our society forward through new scientific and technological advancements.
Within our local community, we saw that many schools have robotics teams that would greatly benefit from more assistance from members of the community. To help, we created a system where high school students can train to become mentors for these robotics teams and give these students opportunities to give back to their community. Every year, we hold multiple seminars where future mentors can learn about robotics, mentoring, and how they can help.
We are also creating robotics labs that students can connect to remotely. The labs include programmable robots, mats with challenges the student can complete, and an array of cameras around each mat. Students can program the robots from anywhere in the world, upload their code to the robotics labs, and watch their programs run in real time. Our labs will reduce the need for families and schools to purchase the expensive equipment they would otherwise need. The curriculum we are developing to be used in conjunction with our labs will be accessible to anyone, free of charge, and will include lessons, videos, quizzes, FAQs, and more.
With your generous support, EV3EVERYWHERE can continue to create new opportunities, giving young minds a platform to experiment, innovate, and develop the skills to become leaders capable of making a positive difference in our world
