Our Mission:

Our mission at Yale Funbotics is to introduce Robotics and STEM concepts to under-resourced communities, empowering them for success in our technology-driven world. Through our initiatives, we strive to foster imagination, teamwork, and inspire students to pursue careers in STEM fields, all while ensuring they have a blast in the process.

Our Activities:

One of our flagship activities is the Yale Funbotics Robotics Camp, a dynamic program designed to engage middle school students from underrepresented backgrounds in New Haven. In collaboration with National Funbotics, a 501c3 organization originated at Yale and supported by Yale SEAS and Dwight Hall, our camp offers hands-on experiences in robotics and STEM disciplines. Participants not only dive into STEM-oriented activities but also collaborate on building robots, leading up to an exciting cone-stacking competition that caps off their learning journey.

Student Leaders:

At the helm of our organization is Nimran Shergill, serving as Co-Coordinator/Co-President. Together, we’re committed to making a meaningful impact on the lives of students in our community.

Our mission is to introduce robotics to the underprivileged youth in New Haven and encourage imagination and teamwork. By providing an early, hands-on look into engineering, Funbotics aims to drive more children into STEM fields from a young age. Through our program, students not only learn the foundations of robotics and develop critical thinking, team-building, and presentation skills, but they also are exposed to the fun in robotics and STEM. We host a six- to seven- session program where students work in groups to build robots and also participate in small STEM activities and discussions.

Yale Funbotics is a chapter of National Funbotics, a 501c3 organization born at Yale, partnered with Yale SEAS and Dwight Hall. Yale Funbotics is dedicated to igniting a passion for STEM in youth by providing fun, hands-on, experiences for under-resourced, underrepresented students in New Haven middle schools. We do this through a curriculum that combines STEM-oriented activities with the larger project of building a robot, culminating in a FUN cone-stacking competition.
