ROBOCON

Outreach

Outreach is a very big part of our team. It is one of the main ways we communicate with our community. Outreach also ties in very closely with our social responsibilites. We partenered with Florence Utilies so that we could fully understand what our robot needed to do. We met with a linecrew and an engineer. The line crew explained their daily job, how they repair and replace the lines, showed us their gear, and explained the dangers of their job. We also visited our local elementary school and spoke with 5th graders about the importance of robotics. We brought Zumo Robots and Vex Robots to demonstrate how robots are used in today's world. We also explained to them what a lineman does, how dangerous a lineman's job actually is, and why linemen need BOLTS so that they can have a safer job. We then asked the students if they would want to join a robotics team one day and 90% responded yes.
