Providing materials for learning and empowering innovation
We work with several local high school and college after-school robotics teams that compete in statewide and national events. They design robots to meet specific needs, create CNC drawings of the parts they need, and we provide them with custom cut carbon fiber parts for no charge. Having access to carbon fiber parts is often a big advantage in their competitions as they can move faster and they often go to finals in state competitions.
It’s amazing how much the kids benefit from involvement in these teams – there’s lots of problem solving, lots of trial and error, discipline, working with people, math, programming and engineering skills and dealing with the pressure to perform at competitions. We love supporting these efforts because the kids have such a desire to succeed and are so appreciative of our support.
