After competition, our team has hit the ground running with presentations and summer planning. This Friday we have two presentations planned at the local elementary school, Meadowbrook, as well as at a STEM for Girls event. Through these presentations we hope to spread our passion for robotics and the many skills it can teach. At STEM for girls especially, we hope to address the appalling gender gap in STEM fields and on our team by teaching these students what amazing opportunities are available and by helping them discover their passions in these areas. The following Monday we will travel to Hillcrest, another elementary school in the district, with a similar purpose.


In addition to our interactions with younger students, we have been maintaining connections with our community through events including a recent presentation at Rockwell Automation’s Take Your Child to Work Day. Our team feels it is crucial to demonstrate the meaning of FIRST throughout the entire year and spread this to the community at large. Sponsorship, while essential to our team, is never a one way street.
