Past Events and Projects
In the FIRST Robotics Community
Our favorite CCC judge visits Team 1671's pits!
Capital City Classic (CCC)
Off-season FRC Competition
2013 - Present
We founded CCC in 2013 and now co-host the tournament with Team 1678 (Citrus Circuits) and Team 3859 (Wolfpack Robotics). Located in Northern California, CCC attracts 45+ teams for a full weekend of competition and technical and non-technical workshops that are also open to non-competing teams.
An FLL competition table-top field
NorCal FLL Qualifiers
FIRST LEGO League Tournaments
2014 - Present
Since 2014, we have hosted Qualifiers Tournaments for FLL teams in the NorCal region. We have also hosted multiple NorCal FLL District Championships. We have been honored to have the privilege of hosting these events, which are crucial stepping stones for younger members of FIRST to advance into higher-level robotics programs.
In Our School District (EGUSD)
Robot demo at Adreani Elementary
Elementary School Demos
FRC Robot Demo and STEAM Activities
2014 - Present
By presenting at local elementary schools, we build a pipeline of interested students by inspiring youth to participate in and pursue STEAM activities and future careers. We engage students with a close-up look of our FRC competition robot in action and hands-on robotics with our LinkBots and VEX robotics.
A Demo for Edna Batey Elementary
Virtual Elementary School Demos
FRC Robot Demo and STEAM Activities
2021 - Present
Due to the effects of the pandemic, it has limited our ability to do in-person outreach events. We solved this by having demos online! We showcase our robot, using multiple cameras to see all the angles of the robot. We also give EagleKits to further engage students past the demonstration
In Our Community
Robot demo at Start Dream Big's class graduation
Community Event Demos
Elk Grove and Sacramento
2015 - Present
By presenting at local community events in partnership with other STEM-related organizations such as Code Ninjas and Start Dream Big, we expand our reach to youth beyond our school district. These opportunities allow us to bring the fun and excitement of STEM and robotics to wider demographics.
A GoBabyGo car recipient in action!
For our students to take the skills they've learned through our robotics programs to serve others, we've taken on two GoBabyGo! projects to modify ride-on battery powered cars to assist children with limited mobility from Cerebral Palsy.
Exoskeleton arm demo
EagleAssist: ExoSkeleton Arm
For a child with muscular dystrophy
Outside of the FIRST Robotics Competition community, our students also learn to apply the skills they've learned through our programs to help and serve those in our community. Designed and built by two of our mechanical students, this exoskeleton helped a local child living with muscular dystrophy who had outgrown their original structure.
Demo at Kiwanis Rancho Murieta meeting
Sunrise and Rancho Murieta
2016 - Present
To engage with members of our local retirement communities, we bring out our robot for a demo and team presentation. Our students also meet with many of the retirees who have worked in technical and mechanical industries to learn from their experiences!
Demo at Kiddy Club Daycare
Kiddy Club DayCare
To further inspire STEM in young children, we provided various robotics activities, including a robot demonstration, VEX and Linkbot stations, and a robot-themed puzzle. At the end, we handed out EagleKits to keep kids engaged in STEAM outside of our event.
Beyond Our Community
Helping FRCC summer students with VEX robots
Fruitridge Community Collaborative (FRCC)
Sacramento Promise Zone
The FRCC serves communities within the Sacramento Promise Zone, a region of California's lowest-income neighborhoods. To add STEM to the FRCC's program, we created a curriculum to teach simple engineering concepts by building a solar car and robotics by working with VEX robots.
Geekology attendees playing with Linkbots
Geekology (Lodi, CA)
World of Wonders Science Museum
Geekology is a "hybrid science convention-meets-fandom festival" that draws hundreds of attendees throughout the Northern California region annually. We bring out our Linkbots and competition bot for people to interact with at this open-ended event to join in on the effort of celebrating and inspiring STEM, technology, and other "geeky" fun.
Girl Scouts playing with VEX robots
Girl Scouts STEM Events
Girl Scouts STEM Center + MakerSpace
2019 - Present
To increase awareness and encourage more female youth to join in on the STEM movement, we partner with Girl Scouts to demo our robot and host other fun robotics activities for young girls to learn about STEM and its possibilities.
Do you have an event that is similar to our past EagleReach events, or an idea for a new outreach project we can collaborate on?
Fill out our EagleReach Inquiry Form to let us know!
We are always excited about partnering up with other groups and organizations to further inspire the next generations of leaders in science and technology.
