2018 Hidalgo Elementary Outreach

On December 7, Team 3303 volunteered at a Santa’s Workshop event at Hidalgo Elementary. During this event, students from the school have the opportunity to build creations such as wooden catapults, marshmallow shooters, and miniature robots.

Since we are a robotics team, our members were assigned to assist the students building the robots. These robots, which consisted of CDs, plastic cup covers, and tiny motors, spun around in unique patterns. Although they were relatively simple, the robots gave the students a hands-on understanding of important robotics skills, such as wiring a motor to a battery.

Team 3303 absolutely enjoyed volunteering at this event because it was exciting to see the kids thrilled about building robots. Accordingly, our team hopes to volunteer again next year.
