Company recognizes STEM and FIRST® Robotics as the key to Michigan’s future
Ellen Green signed up for her high school robotics team because she’s competitive and likes to be involved – not because she was looking for a career.
But Green fell in love with industrial engineering while leading Notre Dame (Pontiac) Prep’s team to success and championships in FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) Robotics competitions.

The world is changing. The Fourth Industrial Revolution is here, and it is having an impact on everything, including the future of work. A significant evolution of the labour market is forecast over the next 10 years, and we do not fully know all the jobs of the future.

Anyone who says you can’t apply computational thinking and digital learning strategies to strengthen students’ skills in the writing is wrong. To the contrary, this innovative learning style helps students hone critical thinking skills across every discipline.
At this annual competition put on by HP and HPE, students get fun, first-hand programming experience solving problems with code.
It’s early morning on a Saturday at Hewlett Packard Enterprise’s Houston campus, and more than 700 teens — some in wizard hats and Viking horns — take their places for the countdown. Across three large, open rooms where employees typically dine and socialize, the groups of two or three have fired up their computers, flipped through dog-eared Java programming books, and set up snacks, sodas and good luck charms at their stations. They’re excited, a little bit nervous and ready to compete.
HP believes education is a human right, and technology can be the great equalizer. We are partnering with Education Cannot Wait, UNHCR and Learning Equality to bring tech-enabled learning to students in Uganda, including refugee learners, through a pilot initiative using HP School Cloud. HP School Cloud is a learning management system preloaded with content and curriculum, and a wireless router all built into one that students can access from any wifi-enabled device--without an Internet connection.
ORLANDO, Fla., April 4, 2019 /3BL Media/ – Lockheed Martin and Discovery Education, the leading provider of digital curriculum resources, digital content and professional development for K-12 classrooms, surprised students today at Lake Nona High School with a top-secret STEM mission creating a prototype aircraft that could serve in a humanitarian aid mission.
Lockheed Martin engineers were on hand to help students complete the challenge. Orange County Schools Superintendent Barbara Jenkins also attended the event.
