As a FIRST robotics team, we aim to embody the principles of FIRST and to expand the program in our community. Through our outreach events, we hope to inspire others to start their own team or participate in FIRST.

Engineering Connections: The Vicious Volts attended Robotics Day at the Space & Rocket

Center hosted by Women in Defense. FRC, FTC, and FLL teams were given the opportunity to demonstrate and share their experiences with FIRST.

Giving back to FIRST: Giving back to FIRST is one of our highest priorities. This is usually accomplished by hosting build days and scrimmages to local FTC team and by volunteering and mentoring FLL teams.

Community Connections: We were able to hold an Informational Meeting at our Robotics building and we held a robot demonstrations during a STEM festival and at one of our team member's school. At these events, we were able to introduce FIRST robotics to people by demonstrating last season's challenge with our competition robot, Elmo, and letting kids of all ages drive our outreach robot.

Community Service: We collected personal hygiene items and packaged them to be distributed to those who are in need. We made food care packages for seniors who live in our community. The Vicious Volts held a Winter Clothing Drive where we collected bags and boxes filled with winter clothing and blankets for the Grace of Hope.
