Potential Development and Rich Center Students Showcase STEM Projects

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio – Students from Potential Development’s middle school program and the Rich Center for Autism gathered on the campus of Youngstown State University to demonstrate their STEM projects.

Students spent two years learning how to write code on a computer, building LEGO robots and using the code to program the robots to complete a specific task.

“Any time a student has an opportunity to participate in a multistep project, and in this case, multiple years with a lot of milestones and benchmarks along the way, that sense of accomplishment becomes a huge motivator, especially when those interests are peaked,” says Greg Boerio, executive director of the Rich Center for Autism.
