After the 2013 season, in which there were no grade 12 students on the team, we decided to create a method of ensuring the transfer of knowledge. We implemented the Junior Executive System, whereby younger students can gain leadership skills while still having the guidance of an older member.
Through our Bots on the Run Foundation, we have organized programs both locally and globally that inspire youth through hands-on STEAM education. Each of the programs are tailored to a unique group of students, which ensures our outreach extends to a diverse audience.
Through our Pencils of Promise initiative, we donated 1,000 kits containing: 10,000 pencils, 1000 erasers, & 1000 sharpeners to the most impoverished school we visited. We held hands on STEAM workshops using these school supplies, such as building pencil catapults. The projects are then disassembled and the school supplies are used in the daily education of these children.
