2019 Outreach Numbers
We have conducted demonstrations for a variety of different organizations, including but not limited to senior citizen homes, corporate offices, local conventions, and our local public library. At these events we will typically bring one larger robot; a smaller robot, which people can drive; an arts and crafts station with buttons, coloring sheets, and word searches; and a variety of other robots and activities. For more information, please visit our Demonstrations Page. If you would like to schedule a demonstration with your organization, please feel free to contact us.
Unfortunately, in 2016, a student on the team named Mirage Patel lost his life to suicide. In 2017, we lost Jeffrey Heberling, an alumnus, to suicide as well. In response to this, we have made it our mission to raise awareness of and support for suicide prevention. For the past couple of years we have invited members of the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention to speak with our students. In addition to this, we have participated in their Out of the Darkness Walks to raise money and awareness.
The Demi Brae Cuccia Awareness Organization
In 2007, a student at Gateway High School named Demi Brae Cuccia was murdered by an ex boyfriend. In her honor, the Demi Brae Cuccia Awareness Organization was created, with the mission of fighting teen dating violence. To honor her memory and to raise awareness of teen dating violence, our drive team wears the organization’s shirts to the Greater Pittsburgh Regional.
Girl Scouts of Western PA
In May of 2018, we started our Girl Scouts initiative to do demonstrations for as many local Girl Scout Troops as we can. For more information, please visit our Girl Scouts Page. If you would like to schedule a demonstration for your Girl Scouts Troop, please feel free to contact us.
