What Robotic Institute of Maine can offer you.

The state of Maine is facing a difficult reality: we are not preparing our young people for the workforce needs of the future. The manufacturing and technology industries in Maine are on the rise! However, there is a major shortage of high-skilled workers graduating to meet this new demand. Our educational system continues to struggle to inspire young people to pursue majors and careers in the STEM fields. This is where competitive robotics can make a significant impact. By developing STEM knowledge in a sport-like atmosphere, robotics competitions help students to develop the necessary skills to be successful in a technology-based career. However, these programs are expensive, and they require mentors who have technical skills. RIM provides the support needed in order to grow and sustain these much-needed programs!
