The RoboJackets Outreach team's mission is the promotion of science and engineering education in K-12 students. Working primarily though USFIRST programs, we engage students directly to facilitate hands-on learning through competitive robotics.

Our educational initiatives currently consist of three primary components:

  • Technology Enrichment Sessions - educational workshops leveraging the FIRST Tech Challenge to teach fundamental robotics concepts to area students.
  • FRC Kickoff - the announcement event for the FIRST Robotics Competition. In 2014, over 1000 students were in attendance on campus.
  • FRC Competition - working directly with an FRC team, we act as coaches and mentors to assist students in fielding a competition robot over an intensive six week build season. The team we are currently working with is FRC 5332, Toaster Tech.
