Abstract: Education in rural areas has always been a struggle either for students or teachers and administrators. Access, distance, teacher retention, and life conditions are only a few of these difficulties. STEM education providing hands-on curriculum for public schools is a way of combining multiple disciplines in projects, is an emerging method of learning. Robotics classes are provided in some schools for students to experience STEM education. The participation is usually voluntary however, student intent and approach are complex situations. This study is intended to explore student intentions and approaches towards after school Robotics classes via a qualitative study involving student interviews, observations and student logs.
