Nonprofit program uses hands-on learning to teach students in Lowell about advancing technologies

LOWELL – In recent weeks, Kids in Tech has hosted Tech Career Day at two program sites in Lowell: Moody Elementary School and Lowell Housing Authority. Featured speakers included Sam Devadoss and Eva Mascot, both software engineers from iRobot. The presentations came on the heels of a recent visit by Kids in Tech students to the ‘Cool Stuff’ museum at the iRobot headquarters in Bedford.

At Moody Elementary School, students were able to explore the functionality of two different iRobot products: a Roomba® robot vacuum and a Braava® robot mop. Students had the opportunity to assemble these products, while learning about different types of engineering career paths in technology from Devadoss. At the Lowell Housing Authority site, students also engaged in an in-depth discussion about careers in software engineering within the robotics sector.
