INDIANAPOLIS (AP): Elementary schools throughout Indiana will get a chance to win free robotics kits for afterschool programs.

Gov. Mike Pence and the Indiana Department of Workforce Development announced the program is a partnership with NASA, TechPoint Foundation for Youth and other entities.

The governor’s office said Friday that 400 schools will be picked to participate in the program, which aims to shepherd students in fourth and fifth grades into career paths related to science, technology, engineering and math.

The initiative will begin in the fall. It’s based on an Indianapolis program that started in 2013 as an effort to expose more high school students to STEM careers.
