Community Outreach

Community outreach is an important aspect of FIRST, and as such, Cougar Robotics loves to spread the STEM spirit. For example, we attend the annual Air and Scare event at the National Air and Space museum, and visit our sponsor’s offices with our robots to teach children about STEM. Additionally, we visit local schools with our outreach bot that the kids can experiment with. We love working with, teaching, and interacting with our community, and as such, we are always looking for more opportunities to be involved in our community. If you have an event you would like us to attend, email us at
