Bayou Academy's new robotics laboratory is a huge first step in providing high school students exposure to STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) fields. The techniques and skills learned in a robotics laboratory will give students an indispensable advantage should they choose to focus their studies on a STEM-related field at the collegiate level.
