Clarkson has supported K-12 robotics education since 1998,
when it established a FIRST Robotics Competition team for
high school students.
In 2007, Clarkson began offering a FIRST LEGO League
program for elementary and middle school students, and a
FIRST Tech Challenge program for high school students.
The programs are administered through the Clarkson-
based Northern New York Robotics Academy (NNYRA). NNYRA
is a growing partnership between area higher education
EDUCATING THE NEXT GENERATION
institutions and the Saint Lawrence-Lewis BOCES. Its
mission is to prepare North Country youth to meet tomorrow’s
engineering/technology workforce needs by developing
standards-based, K-12 robotics education programs, both
extracurricular and in the classroom.
NNYRA also offers day and residential robotics summer
camps at Clarkson in partnership with the Potsdam-based
Robot Zone.
