CROWN POINT | On April 7, students from the St. Mary Catholic Community School’s CyberCats robotics club provided robot demonstrations to guests at the Museum of Science and Industry in honor of National Robotics Week.

National Robotics Week this year is geared toward inspiring the next generation of innovators to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). Congress established National Robotics Week in 2010 to raise awareness about robots and their important role in shaping the future of education, industry and the U.S. economy.

Students at St. Mary’s have been designing, building and programming robots this year. They gave visitors a real treat by letting them drive their robots around using an app on their phones.

The team is coached by computer teacher Heather Clarkson and mentor Dennis Hilburger.
