Last weekend, the Arrowhead United Way sponsored STEM Day for the Black Future Leader’s Inc. Weekend Residency program at Cal State San Bernardino. 

The event provided 40 students an opportunity to build several small robots including a nano bug and a scribble bot. The session was taught by San Bernardino Community College District (SBCCD) instructors. 

Throughout the day students designed, assembled and built their small robots. They also learned about different kinds of motors, electrical circuits, how to wire a momentary control switch and mechanical design. 

CEO and President of Arrowhead United wAy Doug Rowand stated, “The opportunity for students to be exposed to STEM education is an important step in their future careers.” He added, “We are proud to support the engineers of our future.” 

Black Future Leaders Inc. is a program for African American students designed to develop leadership skills and build self-esteem to help them reach their full academic potential.
