Our global outreach is centered around our long standing partnership with the People Investing in People Foundation. To date, we've donated more than $10,000 worth of materials and money to students in Africa, largely to set up a science center for them. We have also written curricula, taught lessons, and led cultural activities.
We operate more than 10 robotics teams in conjunction with the Wolcott Robotics Foundation. Moreover, we are the only team in New England to run an official event at every level of FIRST. Overall, for the 2022-23 school year, we supported, hosted, or ran 10 FIRST events.
Our community outreach involves a strong presence in the community. We participate in events like the Wolcott Special Games, One Clean Day of Fun, and the Wolcott Country Fair, among others.
We run multiple programs that allow us to spread the word of STEM into our community. Let's Make Stuff is a program where students in grades 1-7 make simple engineering projects. Science Splash is an after school program where students in multiple grades can see hands-on science demonstrations.
