ABQ Maker Faire is excited to have The School of Dreams Academy Robotics team show an assortment of the robots built at SODA. The School of Dreams Academy Robotics team won 4th place in the B.E.S.T. robotics competition in 2010 which qualified them for the National finals. The team placed 23 in the National finals!
The Mission of the School of Dreams Academy is to prepare students of Valencia County to become confident, self-sustaining individuals with an enthusiasm for continual learning, as well as a passion for life. Students will be afforded the opportunity to excel in the core subject areas through a rigorous curriculum with emphasis on the arts, technology, character development, and community service learning, giving them the skills necessary for success in post-secondary education and career choices. Each student will come to school daily, knowing that they are cared for and that the school supports them and their families in pursuit of their goals.
