One of the greatest opportunities that you’ll have by joining (or starting) a robotics competition team is that for every event, there is a big project your team will do in conjunction with actually getting ready for the competition itself.
In that project, you do a lot of different things. There’s the documentation for the robot itself and a couple other things, but one of the coolest parts is that a lot of the teams do some sort of outreach themselves. Outreach, as in spreading the love that is robotics.
A team in Reedville is doing just that. Their team name is AFOOFA: “All for one, One for all.” And the one-for-all part of their team goes to Reedville Elementary every week and spends an hour teaching elementary schoolers how to build and program robots.
