Other Enrichment Opportunities

 

Some students are eager for additional opportunities to learn more about robotics and related fields outside of the normal school year.  To facilitate this, WHEAT Foundation has compiled this list of other enrichment opportunites in the NJ area.  Please note that WHEAT has no commercial relationship with any of these organizations, and does not endorse any particular opportunity.
