FIRST Outreach

 

 

Cougars Gone Wired does much to help FIRST programs thrive in the community. There are many robotics activities the team participates in, including:

 

Southern Colorado FLL Regionals

 

Southern Colorado FLL Qualifier

 

Team members have volunteered for several years in the past at the Southern Colorado FLL Regional, filling various jobs. This past year, the event was hosted by another FIRST Robotics Competition team, our friends at Team 662.

Scrimmage 2016

 

For the past four years, Cougars Gone Wired has had the honor of hosting the Colorado Pre-Ship Scrimmage. We build a new practice field each year and set up in the Coronado gym so that teams from all over Colorado, and even from other states, can practice for competition.

Jr. FLL Showcase

 

Every year Cougars Gone Wired hosts the annual Southern Colorado Jr. FLL Showcase. We provide snacks and awards, our mentors serve as judges for the event, and we lead the kids through a team building exercise. Team members supervise the event and present our robot's to the kids. We are also lucky enough to have representation from all levels of FIRST at the event. The Jr.FLL teams get to present their own projects and see examples of all the higher levels of FIRST.

The Cougars mentored three Jr. FLL teams this year, based out of Howbert Elementary. Team members traveled to Howbert once a week to mentor the teams in preparation for the Jr. FLL showcase at Coronado.

Sea Perch

 

Sea Perch

 

Sea Perch is an underwater robotics event where students are provided with a kit of parts to build a “Remotely Operated Vehicle” and they compete to complete an obstacle course underwater. Cougars Gone Wired hosted the event in our school’s cafeteria and pool. We assist those in need in assembling their robot, keep time during the competition, and untangle robots caught in the obstacles.
