S.T.E.A.M. Robotics Magnet
"Without risk, there can be no change."
The future is here and it will be built by those who can design, repair, code, and run robots. Here at Mulholland Middle School S.T.E.A.M. Robotics Magnet we strive to teach our 6-7-8 students to do all this and more. Our program is academically challenging, while addressing the California Common Core State Standards that are required of all students. Not only will students be designing, building and testing robots, students will be continually guided to their full academic potential.
Our dedicated staff of qualified teachers, caring counselors, passionate classified staff, involved parents, and community leaders believe that only when students are allowed to look at their successes and their mistakes will true learning take place
The S.T.E.A.M. Robotics Program at Mulholland Middle School is a student centered learning community where all students are given the opportunity to unlock their potential, facilitated by students, parents, and faculty.
The S.T.E.A.M. Robotics Program at Mulholland Middle School is a student centered community that cultivates a rich learning environment focusing on academic rigor, relevance, and relationships for all students.
SCHEDULE A SCHOOL TOUR
On the tour you will get a complete look at our unique Robotics curriculum of enriched learning, starting with an overview of our program, and then a guided tour to look inside several robotics core classrooms and our pathway electives including future technology engineering, bio-technology, and film/media production. The tours are lead by students who are also available to answer questions. We look forward to seeing you on our tour!
In person tours are currently on hold due to COVID-19. Please contact Brian Cassady, magnet coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org for more detailed information about our amazing program!

ABOUT S.T.E.A.M. ROBOTICS MAGNET
THE ROBOTS HAVEN’T just landed in the workplace—they’re expanding skills, moving up the corporate ladder, showing awesome productivity and retention rates, and increasingly shoving aside their human counterparts. One multi-tasker bot, from Momentum Machines, can make (and flip) a gourmet hamburger in 10 seconds and could soon replace an entire McDonalds crew. A manufacturing device from Universal Robots doesn’t just solder, paint, screw, glue, and grasp—it builds new parts for itself on the fly when they wear out or bust. And just this year, Google won a patent to start building worker robots with personalities. Taken from (Rise of the Machines: The Future has Lots of Robots, Few Jobs for Humans)
Here at Mulholland Middle School Robotics Magnet we offer students the opportunity to construct challenging robots for the chance to compete in robotic competitions. At the competitions, alliances of robotic teams compete with and against other teams where they try to outmaneuver other robots. The goal is to out maneuver other teams and acquire the greatest number of points. The students redesign their robots based on prior competitions, adapting them for the challenges of the next competition.
The future is here and it will be built by those who can design, repair, code, and run robots. Here at Mulholland Middle School Robotics Magnet we strive to teach our students to do all this and more. Our program is academically challenging while addressing the core standards that are required of each student. Not only will students be designing robots, but each student will be nudged to their full academic potential.
Our staff of qualified teachers believes real learning happens when students are allowed to discover through hands-on, learning models. True learning is looking at the successes and the mistakes and modifying learning based on the discoveries of both. We strive to provide educational opportunities that will engage students in the learning process. They are excited and energized while being exposed to a wide variety of concepts and skills. We hope to give each student the advantage of productive careers in the real world.

Engineer Girl – Engineering Careers
Check out this awesome, easy to navigate website that provides loads of information for girls who are interested in engineering (boys should check it out too!). Find out about the education requirements, salary, and even the lifestyles associated with a variety of different careers in engineering. You can also learn about some amazing women that have gone into engineering careers.
Engineering is a field that focuses on creating and using scientific and technological solutions to problems, such as machines, programs, or structures. It’s crucial for kids to learn about engineering because this knowledge can set them up for a good career. There are many types of engineers, so kids with a wide variety of interests may find that a future in engineering appeals to them. But even kids who don’t plan on becoming engineers can benefit from honing their research and problem-solving skills through study in this area.
