MSU St. Andrews offers a number of resources to support youth robotics enthusiasts in the Midland region to provide hands-on opportunities to learn STEAM concepts.
Robotics Competition Field
MSU St. Andrews sponsors a robotics field at Midland Public Schools’ former Carpenter Elementary to serve the Midland region. Rookie robot drivers have the opportunity to experience a real driver’s station and practice on a full field with carpet and sidewalls.
Computer Numerical Control (CNC) Machine
A Tormach multi-function CNC machine is available at MSU St. Andrews. This machine will allow mentored robotics competitors to fabricate their own parts on site. The facility also offers 3D printing and design software in order to permit competitors to create prototypes before using the CNC equipment.
