Team Impulse is proud to be the varsity robotics team at STEM School and Academy in Highlands Ranch, Colorado. We are supported by the school's administration and faculty, who understand that the experiences our team provides the students are supplemental to what they are learning in their science, technology, engineering, and math classes. Through STEM Enrichment, we are also able to provide these experiences to other students in the area who do not attend STEM School. The engineering labs at STEM provide all of the tools our team needs to build our FRC robot. In addition to the standard hand tools and power tools found in most technology education labs, STEM is also equipped with such tools as: a 3D printer, a laser engraver, a CNC milling table, a vertical mill, a TIG welder, etc. Hands-on learning with these tools gives students not only technical knowledge but also confidence in their technical abilities.
This year's STEM FRC team will be coached by a group of experienced mentors and community members. Students will be taught about all aspects of robotics and receive hands-on training from professionals in specific skills related to design, fabrication, and programming. Core values of gracious professionalism, safety, and creativity will be stressed throughout the year. Parents are encouraged to earn their volunteer time by supporting team meetings (technical and non-technical help is welcome). Please contact Sara Phelps (firstname.lastname@example.org, 303-683-7836) with any questions.
