Red Rock Robotics
This past Saturday members from the Red Rock Robotics FRC (First Robotics Competition) team hosted an information and demonstration booth at the Salt Lake City Maker’s Fair. The students promoted West High School STEM programs, with emphasis on the various robotics opportunities through the First program. We spoke to prospective West students and their parents, community members both young and old, as well as local technology industry denizens. It was absolutely wonderful to watch these talented, passionate, young people share their passion and expertise with a wide range of our community members. All of this happened at the end of a wild week, involving an unexpected invitation to the FRC World Competition in Houston, TX (THIS Wednesday), a whirlwind single business day of raising significant travel funds from our generous sponsors, and making preliminary travel arrangements, more days of confirming travel arrangements, shipping a large amount of robot-and-gear, and organizing the students who will be traveling.
This past Saturday while everyone was enjoying the last beautiful days of Spring Break, the West High Science Olympiad teams were hard at work at the State competition at the University of Utah.
