Creativity and innovation are key elements to advancing the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) into the future. The RDL (Robot Drone League) challenge was designed to provide students with open-ended challenges that allow them to create and innovate using their hands and minds. Students then have the opportunity to develop real-world connections to what they are learning in the classroom. Working with robots in a collaborative game format can be a very powerful tool to engage students and enhance their math and science skills through hands-on, student-centered learning. Through participation in the RDL (Robot Drone League), students can develop the essential life skills of teamwork and collaboration, as well as the critical thinking, project management, and communication skills required to become the next generation of innovators and problem-solvers in our global society. The RDL “Tower Takeover” 2019 Challenge, presented by STREAMWORKS, is designed to inspire students to develop a lifelong passion for learning and interest in pursuing educational and career opportunities in STEM fields.
