 The START Program
Career Pathways and Robot Building Experience

The STEM Training and Robotics Technology (START) Program is a hands-on, active and rewarding project based program designed to inspire, highlight, and create awareness of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) career pathways, opportunities, and education, while developing critical, creative and innovative reasoning skills through hands-on projects. Students learn to solve problems and develop solutions used in real-world applications found in day-to-day life and the workplace.

Program topics are presented in an interactive and fun format, and engage students interested in exploring the world of technology.

Students build a VEX robot for classroom competition, participate in three electric building projects, and join college and industry tours, in addition to other activities. Program topics and projects are connected to each other, showing students the continuum of STEM in everyday life and throughout society.

El Camino College students and high school students interested in STEM are encouraged to apply for this program.

The START Program is your start to a STEM career!
