Service Learning is our way of giving back to our communities. We are funded, encouraged, and mentored by members of our communities and we enjoy taking time as a group to assist in meeting the needs of our community as a way of saying thank you.
Service Learning opportunities we have supported in 2009 include:
Platte River Revival, September 2009: cleaning up brush, trash, and planting trees along the Platte River Pathway is a fun fall activity in which hundreds of community members participate. We see these same folks every year and haul tons of pruned tree limbs and trash. We have even pulled a car out of the river.
Casper Children’s Theater, October 2009: providing scary automated props for a haunted house and staffing the event provides fun and assists this community youth group with fundraising. Our robotic skills help scary faces jump out of the darkness and delight the thrill seekers.
FIRST Tech Challenge (FTC), November 2009, December 2009, January 2010: we support our upcoming roboteers by hosting FTC scrimmages, robot build days, and the upcoming Wyoming FTC Regional. Our skill sets of programming, robot design, and mentoring come in handy as we assist our junior high and high school students have fun with science, math, and technology.
