Use Robots to Teach in Underserved Schools

Across the nation, schools are implementing new curricula in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). However, some under-resourced schools struggle to keep pace and cannot purchase the appropriate tools to provide their students with crucial hands-on experiences.

Named in memory of Drs. Marlin Simon and C. Harry Knowles, both of whom had a profound impact on the college and educators throughout the country, the Simon-Knowles Innovative Learning Library (SKILL) was established to eliminate this barrier. 

SKILL offers various robotic platforms at no cost to rural and under-resourced schools in east central Alabama. Teachers can borrow kits for up to four weeks and receive professional development from the Southeastern Center of Robotics Education (SCORE) to enhance instruction.

SKILL is dedicated to continuing the legacies of Drs. Simon and Knowles by sharing a love for science and math. Invest in our efforts to equip today’s students for success by donating this Tiger Giving Day!
