OUTREACH

Demonstrations 

 

We often go out into the community to do static and active demonstrations around Brevard and even Orange County. These demos provide us with the opportunity to show off our robots and community programs, as well as the chance to inspire young minds and educate the public about Team 1592, FIRST robotics, and the importance of S.T.E.M. education. We have demoed at events such as Come Out With Pride, NASA Robotic Mining Competition, and Dreamflight NASA Night.

 

Would you like us to come do a demonstration at your event? Let us know by sending us an email using the form to the right!

Students Taking A New Direction 

 

STAND is our anti-bullying initiative. We purchased the right to present the movie “Bully,” which is part of The Bully Project. We made and performed a short presentation to accompany a showing of the documentary "Bully" to the student leaders of our high school. If you want to know more about this event, you can visit Florida Today.

Girls Riveting Our World With Leadership 

 

GROWWL is our girl empowerment program, designed to empower girls, shatter stereotypes and encourage gender equality in the STEM community. To introduce this program we created postcards showing girls in FIRST to encourage girls to join a FIRST team and to get involved in S.T.E.M.

Tigers Advocating Literacy Education 

 

TALE is our literacy program. Our local community has a low income and literacy rate. To help our community, we wrote and illustrated a children's book (If You Give A Tiger A Robot) and read it to children at local daycares, elementary schools, and community centers. We also recorded audio readings of our book and many other childrens' books so that children can still read along with books even if they have no one to read to them.

Cocoa Police Department SWATbot 

 

In 2012, the Cocoa Police Department approached us about building a robot to be used in hostage situations. Over the next two years, with the help of The Pink Team and Horsepower, we designed and built them a SWAT bot. This robot is capable of carrying items like backpacks and phones, has front and rear facing cameras, and has several other useful functions. In appreciation, the Cocoa Police department started a scholarship fund of $1000 for seniors on our team. Read More

Build Season! 

 

The 2018 game is announced! The Bionic Tigers are working hard to construct our robot for FIRST Power Up. We only have six weeks to perfect a finished robot for competition. We are taking everything that we have learned during the off-season and putting all of that knowledge to work.
