One of our primary goals is to spread the idea and knowledge of STEM. We achieve this through our multiple outreach programs. Our students work with kids of all ages through various events hosted by us throughout Boston and its surrounding cities. Shown below are just a few of the ways we like to help the community.
FIRST LEGO LEAGUE
The FIRST Lego League (FLL) is another FIRST program for young, inspired minds. With the help from volunteers and students, we hold a qualifier competition at Revere High School in Revere, Massachusetts.
LATINO STEM ALLIANCE
The Latino STEM Alliance (LSA) is a program that we support with great pride. The LSA partners with schools, private imdustries, community groups, and academia to bring STEM experiences to underserved youth. Our students volunteer to help with The LSA in any and all position available, from creating the challenges and games to mentoring teams to working at the events.
Every year before build season, we host a series of informational seminars relating to all aspects of robotics, both technical and not. All teams in the area are welcome and encouraged to take part and learn from both our students and mentors alike.
Along with the above, the Nutrons also have other outreach programs. These consist of:
VEX IQ programs at 3 different middle schools.
An FLL program at 3 different elementary schools.
Beantown Blitz, an annual off-season FRC event hosted by us at the Revere High School.
