School and Community Outreach


Bobcats Robotics takes advantage of every opportunity to showcase First Tech Challenge robotics in our school, community, and around the city. We have hosted a Chicago League meet for the past two seasons, and also volunteer at other local FTC competitions when we are not competing.  

Our team participates and demonstrates robots in every school open house and admissions event, and have participated in the Museum of Science and Industry’s Robot Block Party for various times.   

We have planned workshops to teach code and engineering design basics to elementary school students (using LittleBits as well as FTC parts), and taught these workshops at our local Back of the Yards public library, the Casa Romero community center in our neighborhood, and a neighborhood health fair.
