WELCOME TO THE WEBSITE FOR YALE FUNBOTICS!
“I liked all of the Pathways to Science events, but the one that stands out the most was Pathways to Engineering. It was cool to see the engineering department at Yale and to see the demonstrations. I want to be an engineer, so being able to talk to Yale engineers about their work was amazing. Seeing their labs and how they work was also great. I had never been in a real lab before. I learned a lot about nanotechnology and some possible careers, too.”

Yale Funbotics is a seven-session workshop where Pathways middle school students build robots in teams with guidance from Yale College students. The series is designed to teach core engineering skills, team building, critical thinking, and problem solving while having FUN! At the end of the program, students and their newly-built robotic creations face-off in a cone-stacking competition.
