Outreach is a huge part of our team and FTC, and we spend a lot of time and effort planning, organizing, and hosting outreach events to expand our audience and educate our community about our mission in robotics! We want to encourage everyone we interact with to take part in robotics and introduce them to how interesting robotics really is! Check out more about our outreach events here!
Our team’s “signature event” is Robo Con. That event has its own website at https://roboconusa.org/
Robo Con 2023, was a robotics event open to the public in which we hosted STEM activities, workshops, robot test drives and a scrimmage. See photos here. We plan to host Robo Con every year. Stay tuned for Robo Con 2024 which will happen right after states at CHS. Details are coming soon, make sure you sign up for this exciting event!
In the 2022 – 2023 challenge (POWERPLAY), we created the Ballistic Banana, shown here.
