Over the years North Texas Giving Day has assisted our team in reaching almost 1.5 million people, and helped us raise critical funds to:
Start Robotics teams for elementary students to spread awareness for STEM in younger students
Helped us create STEM Gals, an offseason robotics competition to bring awareness to women in STEM
Created presentations for younger students interested in STEM, who will help us erase the 1 million STEM worker gap expected by 2020.
Held presentations for parents to teach them how to create teams
Our team can be seen all over Rockwall in our orange camo pants! Over the past 16 years, we have built a team with a reputation of being leaders in our community. We make efforts to improve the skills of our team members, provide enriching robotics activities to local residents, and volunteer in our community, to create a bright and sustainable future in Rockwall, Texas. We encourage our students to develop an interest in STEM beyond our robotics season. Our program provides the opportunity for our students to experience real-world engineering projects and enhance our organizational and communication skills. This mindset demonstrates our team’s focus and builds our character.
Because of this commitment, our team is stronger, our district is stronger, and our community is stronger. Through our extensive outreach efforts at over 260 events, we have spread STEM to more than 4,000,000 people and volunteered 5,000+ hours since June 2016. We believe that through these activities we are going to change the world. Together, we are the Rockwall High School Robotics Team.
Get up and give this Thursday, North Texas Giving Day to the Rockwall High School Robotics Team.
