Robotics Program

Stafford MSD’s Robotics Program called IBot, is a district-wide program from K-12. The IBot was developed with the vision for all Stafford MSD’s students to learn about science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) through robotics. The program is operated under the George Foundation Grant for a three years span, ending August 31. The program will be launched at the beginning of school year 2015-2016, and years after.

Under the IBot program, STEM teachers, team coaches, and district administrators are among the collaboration teams to carry out specified goals. Each goal is clearly identified below and evaluated. We use IBot Integration Rubric (IIR) to rate our progress among the collaboration teams: 0 = Not Demonstrating (ND), 2 = Beginning, 3 = Developing, 5 = Accomplishing, and 10 = Exemplary. This is a long-term plan. Our goal is continue to build strong relationships and partnerships with the George Foundation, Hunting Energy Services, H-E-B, Rudolph Medical Associates, University of Houston, FIRST Robotics Competition, Texas Workforce Commission, Smart Financial Credit Union, Best Burger and SMSD Education Foundation. All of these organizations helped the program come to fruition.
