STEAM CUP USA is a nonprofit agency providing STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) educational programs and competitions for students in the K-12 system through the use of Robotics. Activities in robotics promote key essential skills needed to be successful in STEAM related fields. Robotics promote systematic thinking, a programming mindset, active listening, judgement and decision making, good communication, technology design, complex problem solving, and persistence.
The PLAY600 Challenge is an open themed, design-based challenge, that introduces kids to basic STEAM concepts via robotics design while encouraging them to play and express their creativity.
With this challenge, STEAM CUP USA hopes to lower the barrier of entry into robotics by providing simple and affordable PLAY600 kit.
This monthly challenge is to provide members of the STEAM CUP community an opportunity to design practical robot applications. This is in the hope of inspiring the next generation of robot enthusiasts.
