On Monday, October 16, Boston University Academy’s robotics team, the Lobstah Bots, represented BUA at the MA STEM Week Kickoff event hosted by Boston University at the Center for Computing & Data Sciences. The event featured remarks by Massachusetts Lt. Governor Kim Driscoll; Massachusetts Secretary of Education Dr. Patrick Tutwiler; and Boston University Provost ad interim Dr. Kenneth Lutchen.
At the kickoff event, the BUA robotics team demonstrated one of their robots as part of the STEM exhibits on display, and also met with New England FIRST robotics director Michael Fantom and a reporter from WBZ radio. Says Lobstah Bots team captain George Baltus ’24, “We were really happy for the opportunity to attend the event and continue to find more new ways to contribute to our Boston community!”
A collaboration of the Massachusetts Executive Office of Education and the STEM Advisory Council, STEM Week is an annual statewide effort to boost the interest, awareness, and ability of all learners to make the most of STEM opportunities.
