Building Robots at the Science Spectrum

RoboRaiders took Robotics to the next level by introducing the fun of planning, designing, and building to children that will hopefully pursue a STEM occupation while visiting the Science Spectrum. Team 1817 took junk and had kids make a robot out of it. This was a creative outreach and the kids enjoyed themselves. Who ever thought tinkering could be so exciting?

Texas Tech Women’s Basketball Game

On Wednesday December 3, 2014 RoboRaiders were invited to attend the Texas Tech Women’s basketball game; Texas Tech Vs. Abilene Christian school. The game celebrated the Lady Raider’s Education Day in which kids from all surrounding areas were in the crowd cheering the game and excited to see robots on the court during the half time show! We took our partner in crime, Mantis and the t-shirt launcher and showed off the robots. It was an exciting event and the children enjoyed it!
