Steven Bardonner, Department Chair of Design Technology and Mechanical Engineering Technology at Ivy Tech Community College-Columbus, has received the Education Champion Trophy from Innovation First Inc. for robotics workshops that have taught more than 800 school teachers across the state how to incorporate robotics into their math, science, and technology curricula.

The award was presented to Bardonner and three other Ivy Tech faculty members from Kokomo who organize the workshops, which are held annually at different Ivy Tech campuses throughout the state. In a three-day period, teachers learn about robotics, basic robotic programming, basic parametric modeling, and how to use this knowledge in their school curricula.
