Our thoughts on Community Service

Our team met year-round for 8 years.  Team members were given plenty of opportunities to perform community service as well as work on robotics projects.  Each year we developed projects in new areas and grew existing projects in order to allow newer teams to follow in our footsteps.  As alumni, we continue to do much of the same.
