Casa de la Esperanza 

Casa de la Esperanza is a 32-unit residential community dedicated to helping agricultural workers. The community is owned and operated by the Boulder County Housing Authority in the City of Longmont.  This center provides educational and recreational services to Casa residents, including an onsite “after-school” program and academic center.

The Casa de la Esperanza Robotics Academy was developed in the spring of 2007 to foster student’s engagement in their own education as they work with professional mentors in preparation for a robotics competition. These regional competitions are held at universities such as: University of Denver,  and others elementary, middle, and high schools. The Casa Robotics Academy includes: JR. LEGO Robotics (ages 6-9 yrs.), LEGO Robotics (9-12 yrs.), VEX Robotics for      5-8th grade students, FIRST Robotics Competition for high school youth. Other STEM activities include math, science and computer technology classes and projects.

The Casa Robotics Academy has become a critical and innovative aspect of the Casa STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) educational initiative.
