Robots for Positivity
@robotsforpositivity is an instagram based initiative that utilizes FIRST Robotics’ platform to spread positivity through STEAM. At a glance, FIRST Robotics impacts roughly 660,000 students and 79,000 teams. That’s 660,000 students and 79,000 teams doing some Good Stuff around the globe--making a difference while making robots. RobotsForPositivity looks to highlight the achievements done by these teams, and spread positivity throughout the community.
As FIRST participants ourselves, we hope to bring FIRST Robotics to mainstream light and recognize all the good things that teams do, while uniting robots and art.
STEM to Go
STEM To Go is a nonprofit online educational website hat posts articles related to different topics of STEM! The articles are written by high school students that are very intelligent and interested in STEM as well. We began this online blog due to the current pandemic. Many may not be able to borrow books from the library anymore or buy books due to financial issues. STEM To Go is 100% online and free for anyone that is curious and excited to learn more about STEM topics! The website is separated into three age categories: children, teens, and adults. Everyone is welcome to read and find their personal interests! We are planning on expanding by creating new projects such as including fun lecture videos, tutoring, and more!

ZoomKidz is an educational program taught by teen mentors to give children opportunities to learn about topics in various academic areas in a fun way during these difficult times. Children from Grades K-5 can join the meetings on Zoom, a video-calling platform, once a week for 40 minutes, and interact with the lesson. Meetings for Grades K-2 will be held separately from the Grades 3-5 meeting. We hope this can be an engaging environment that your kids can be a part of!
