Texas Torque held an event for local FLL teams on May 16th. We were happy to see the joy in everyone’s faces while they were in competition, and to have a hand in spreading STEM throughout our community. More than 20 teams participated, and members of Texas Torque volunteered to referee, keep score, and help students to learn the importance of STEM. Our goal was to expose children in a critical learning age to (and hopefully spark lasting interests in) STEM.
During the event, FLL students were able to tour TTWHQ, where members of Torque taught them about subteam structures and showed off our robots from past years. Many FLL students enjoyed the tour, and we were happy to show off the lab. Through this, Torque encouraged FLL students to continue their STEM education by giving them a glimpse of the excitement of an FRC lab.
