Inspiring Future Generations
Outreach into our communities is at the very heart of our team. We aim to bring the knowledge and skills we have gained in robotics to not only our fellow students, but to our surrounding communities as well.
We demonstrate our robot at local elementary schools and community events to spread the word about FIRST robotics and encourage more of today’s youth to pursue STEAM careers.
For a more engaging STEAM experience, we also provide LinkBots and VEX Robots for EagleReach participants to interact with to learn more about what robotics can make possible.
EagleCourse is a series of workshops that we host for young kids to promote STEAM in an educational setting. The platforms used during these workshops vary between Arduino electronics and VEX IQ kits. Across both platforms, our EagleCourse students receive instructions and guidance from EagleForce student counselors to learn different aspects of STEAM.

In addition to inspiring and teaching young kids about STEAM, we also give them EagleKits so they can bring the hands-on fun of STEAM home. These kits contain instructions for a couple STEAM-related activities, as well as most of the supplies that kids would need to complete those activities.
With EagleAssist, we work on projects that help kids in our community. Our biggest project was a collaboration with Go Baby Go to modify ride-on vehicles for young children with disabilities. We apply the skills learned from being on the team to real-world applications that benefit our community.

We are always excited about partnering up with other groups and organizations to further inspire the next generations of leaders in science and technology!
