Members of the National Systems Contractors Association (NSCA) were in Dallas-Fort Worth for the association’s annual Pivot to Profit Conference. To kick off the conference, Texas based professional services firm alliantgroup sponsored a team building exercise where attendees learned to code Ozobot Evo robots. Ozobots can be programmed to follow lines and read color code markers to change speed, alter direction and perform fancy moves like spinning.
At the conclusion of the event, the Ozobots were donated to students from the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Dallas. The robots will be used by students at Williams Prep Boys & Girls Clubs in their STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) programming.
One of the biggest concerns we often hear from our industry partners is that there are just not enough STEM graduates for them to hire. Part of our mission to help American businesses grow and keep technical jobs in America includes increasing the talent pool available to U.S. businesses.
We want to start them early and spark the imaginations of young people to see a future changing the world in a STEM field. We love partnering with organizations like the NSCA and the Boys & Girls Clubs who share our vision.
Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Dallas’ mission is to enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens. NSCA and alliantgroup hope to inspire kids interested in STEM to create with technology like Ozobots.
