The Clavius Project @ SLUH began in 2014 as a collaboration among students, faculty and staff to bring education in STEM to St. Louis urban middle schools. Named after Christopher Clavius—a German Jesuit mathematician and astronomer responsible for the Gregorian Calendar as well as the first to confirm his former student Galileo's Heliocentric Theory of the universe—the program has achieved considerable success and momentum in just a short period of time. The Clavius Project offers FLL robotics, EV3 Lego Mindstorm click & drag and Robot C program language; and math & science tutoring. Platforms in development include rocketry, coding, advanced robotics and quad copters.
