To spread awareness of FIRST and STEAM education, the Titanium Knights participate in street fairs, robotics showcases and run outreach events focusing on children. Our aim is to inspire the younger generation of scientists, engineers, artists and mathematicians to pursue their interests.
Mentoring FLL Teams
The Titanium Knights invited an FLL team to the captain’s house. We gave a mock competition where we had them demonstrate their project and their robot's abilities and then critiqued them on their strengths and weaknesses.
We plan to continue to mentor FLL teams around our community to promote STEAM education and the ideals of FIRST. On February 22 and 23, we traveled to Waldwick, NJ to mentor three FLL teams.
BCA Academy After Hours Program
BCA runs a program called Academy After Hours where students and teachers educate middle school students about various topics. Our team ran a program called Robotics 101 over the summer to teach middle school students the basics of programming and building a robot. A similar program ran once a week from early October to late November. Educational mBots and a coding tool known as Scratch were utilized during this program to introduce students to engineering and programming. We plan tp run the program again next summer.
