We strongly encourage our experienced members to support robotics and STEM education programs within our community. We have had several team members that have helped coach and start FLL teams in our area. To learn more about the FLL program see the links at the bottom of the page. All veteran team members are required to participate in teaching younger students through out extensive Outreach Program (hover over the “Programs” tab, then click on “Community Outreach” for more info.).
Students from 2522 mentored a rookie FLL team at Cedar Park Elementary School. Leading the younger students through the process of engineering and making a presentation for the first time was a great experience for everyone involved.
Ali will be working this Fall with the Cedar Park School to run an FLL team there. Sara-Beth and Ali organized and ran an assembly and NXT mini-camp at Cedar park in the spring to help recruit for the FLL team in order to start a STEM program at the Lynnwood Cedar Park school.
Thu worked with the Alderwood Boys and Girls club FLL program during the off-season and Mikayla helped advise their FLL team in the Fall.
Pete assisted with coaching two FLL teams at AMS this fall. He focused on teaching the students teamwork, design and programming skills. The students loved having him there and did not want the season to come to an end. The focus on teaching programming was Pete’s Senior Project.
Sara-Beth coached the FLL team at ABGC this fall. She met with the team twice a week, taking them from team organization, through the regional competition in Dec. Sara-Beth was honored with the Young Adult Mentor Award at the Lynnwood FLL Regional.
Sara-Beth and Thu from our team continue to meet afterschool with the students at ABGC, working with robots and furthering their knowledge of programming and design.
Violet is working with Robotics & More, our teams afterschool technology club for students ages 11-14. She has developed a program that will teach the students design principles, particularly the use of Solidworks CAD. Then they will build and program their designs to complete a mini-competition. Violet will earn her Senior Project requirement through her work with this program.
Several student members helped mentor the AMS FLL teams. Two students, Mikayla and Radu, stepped in and subbed as coaches at the Regional competition so that both adult coaches would be free to volunteer at the competition.
Evan E. developed an afterschool Technical Club at AMS for his Senior Project. The club focused on the real life applications of math and physics. Evan had the students design, build and program LEGO MINDSTORM NXT catapults.
Several student members helped mentor the AMS FLL team. Bryan helped teach NXT-G programming and Sean helped with teaching mechanical design.
