Students from Team 2035 show the machine shop to Carmel River School 5th graders
One of the simplest ways to spread STEM enthusiasm, especially to younger kids, is to demonstrate our robot and its capabilities. We have brought our robots to our district's preschool, elementary schools and middle school, receiving lots of interest and support from the kids. In addition, we have invited students into our shop to show them what we do during the build, from machining to coding. We hope that this will not only grow our future team but get kids excited about STEM at a young age.
Team 2035 has also inspired the growth of an FLL team at our school district's local middle school. Our goal for 2017 is to mentor this team and take them to their first competition.
