TechPoint Foundation for Youth selected Gregory A. Ballard, Mayor of Indianapolis, as the 2015 Bridge Builder Award recipient. The Bridge Builder Award is given to an individual, program, or organization that has transformed technology education for Indiana’s students who are typically underrepresented in STEM fields, including girls, minorities, and students from low-income backgrounds.Mayor Ballard received this award in recognition of his vision, commitment, and steadfast pursuit of providing access to hands-on, mentor-led, robotics education and programming for all Indianapolis students. Watch the video below to hear Mayor Ballard talk about the event!
The 3rd annual City of Indianapolis VEX Robotics Championship was a success with over 130 school teams from Indy elementary, middle, and high schools competing Nov. 15 – 16, 2014. The STEM Fair was host to over 35 booths featuring hands-on STEM learning activities such as robot chess and mathematics pentathlon.
The Mayor’s goal is for every school in Indianapolis to participate. To make this possible, we are waiving entry fees and fundraising to provide robot kits for new teams and expansion kits for returning teams.
The 4th annual City of Indianapolis VEX Robotics Championship will be taking place in November of 2015! Please click HERE to view updated policies for this year’s event.
