Harlem Middle School Students Tackle Robotics

Dec. 14, 2007

The Harlem Middle School Robotic Challenge Program, sponsored by Columbia University’s Center for Technology, Innovation and Community Engagement (part of the Fu Foundation School of Engineering and Applied Science) and the Morningside Area Alliance, is designed to engage middle school students from throughout Harlem using interactive robot-building sets. The program – which features another challenge Saturday, Dec. 15, at 10 a.m. at the Frederick Douglass Academy on 2581 Adam Clayton Powell Jr. Boulevard – provides local community children with a foundation in simple programming logic and engineering design skills.
