Team Impulse is proud to be the varsity robotics team at STEM School 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 First Robotics Competition 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.
To provide opportunities for students to apply their STEM skills to solve authentic, open-ended engineering problems.
To provide opportunities for students to engage with and learn from STEM professionals.
To teach and practice gracious professionalism.
To develop social, teamwork, and leadership skills.
To inspire and support student exploration and pursuit of STEM careers.
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.
This summer we will be working on some shorter robot projects, welding instruction, vision software training, java training, bumper sewing workshop and some community outreach events. We will build robots and compete in the SparkFun battle bot competition in Boulder as well as playing the Destination Deep Space game again at the Colorado Robot Invitational.
Please check our calendar for meeting dates and times: http://frc4418.weebly.com/calendar.html
The team hosts an Open House Meeting every Tuesday at 5:30pm - invite friends to check it out!
Cost for the 2019 Summer Season: $100 / student – This helps cover robot build materials and competition fees this summer.
