Mississippi Valley State University’s Department of Engineering Technology has entered into collaboration with Virginia Tech and the Sunflower County Consolidated School District (SCCSD) in a partially funded National Science Foundation (1511792) robotics collaborative titled “Actualizing STEM Potential in the Mississippi Delta.”
The program is an adapted version of a robotics collaborative program co-developed by the lead investigator, Dr. Brenda R. Brand, associate professor in science education at Virginia Tech.

The Virginia model program has been highly successful and is now entering its 16th year.
