Mike Marzzetta, founder of MINDS-I, inc explains how he wants to make a difference with students. It's important that kids catch a fever and passion about STEM subjects. (Science Technology Engineering and Math) In this video he describes the theme of Meltdown at the Reactor, a new middle school competition developed by MINDS-i. Based off current events like the Tsunami in Japan, the course tries to mimic real life as much as possible. In the first two sections of the course teams must program their robot to navigate autonomously through a hallway and then follow a line. Pilots are then given control of their robot and must move three "nuclear fuel rods" to a safe containment area or "Bruce Banner" a innocent bystander will be transformed into the hulk if the fuel rods are not contained within the time limit. Students then must pick up the victim, Bruce Banner or the Hulk, and navigate their way out of the disaster wreckage. Teamwork is a big part of the competition, because of the limited amount of build time. Oftentimes, teams were divided into specialties like mechanical, electrical, and programming design. Team members would need to communicate and come together in agreement in the design process of their robot. Teachers, Parents, and students were committed during the entire process putting in extra hours, long nights, and weekends to complete their robot.

If your passionate about students, and robotics, MINDS-i is the perfect fit for you.
