Students Use Robotics to Solve Real World Problems


A winter break workshop at GCC brought new interest to Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math

Guam – High school students navigated nuclear meltdowns, crossed frozen tundras, and ventured into space through the use of robots at Guam Community College today.

The real life scenarios were presented to private and public school students participating in a workshop on electronics, renewable energy, and robotics.

GCC Associate Professor of Science Dr Jay Sunga says the students formed companies and had to build and design robots to complete tasks that solved the problems presented to them. This challenged the students to conduct real world applications with science.

Students participating in the program said they were interested in careers in marine technology, programming, engineering, and more.
