Recently on July 21st, Red Alert Robotics housed a special guest during the time of our meeting. Melissa Acton, a Representative of Todd Young, came to visit our new facility. Melissa was shown around our new building and was presented the many things we do and that we have accomplished during our past 11 years as a team. During her visit, we also took the opportunity to promote the idea of the Christa McAuliffe Coin Act for the Dean’s Homework. We would personally like to thank Todd Young and especially Melissa Acton for giving us an opportunity to spread the word of FIRST.
On Saturday April 9th Red Alert Robotics hosted a STEM Fair at Center Grove Middle School Central. There were a large number of children and adults who visited to participate in STEM related activities and learn about how STEM is incorporated in robotics. Students were able to interact with children in order to inspire and teach them about what the world of STEM is like. One objective not related to STEM at the fair was collecting money for the non-profit organization, Pack Away Hunger, so our team can eventually hold a meal packing session. We look forward to hosting another STEM Fair next year!
Over the years Red Alert Robotics has tried to work with businesses in the community to promote both their business and our team. The people at the Strange Brew Coffee House have been very kind to us and allowed us to sell our own coffee brand called Robot Rampage. For every sale of this coffee Red Alert will receive a portion of the sale. Each sale of this coffee greatly helps our team and will help to promote a local business in the community. You can buy the coffee in store or online, the address to their store and website will be posted below. Go check out our coffee!
