Spartronics hosted the second round of our team’s STEAM workshops at the Bainbridge Island Museum of Art (BIMA). It was a major success as kids and parents showed up in droves, ready to learn. The free workshops were offered on December 27th, for Circuit Analysis, and December 30th for Creating Dynamic Sculptures. Throughout the day, the room was full and there was a constant feeling of excitement in the air from the enthusiasm coming from Spartronics members radiating to the public.
This community outreach event was a fantastic opportunity to spread awareness to children and parents of the future STEAM pathways available for children of all ages. A couple of the kids who were participating in the BIMA events recognized Spartronics team members from previous elementary school visits in 2016. In addition, many parents asked about what opportunities there were for their kids who were interested in STEAM and robotics.
Spartronics Team 4915 sends a big thank you to Heather Griffin at BIMA for helping the team arrange these workshops!
Westside Pizza takeover raised awareness and dollars
Spartronics first restaurant takeover in early December at Westside Pizza, netting Spartronics $800 in proceeds from the event, and more importantly, raised more awareness about our team, robots and how STEAM is helping students build new skills.
Team members served Spartronics supporters, sponsors, friends and family members who turned out to have Pizza dinner at Westside. Special thanks go out from Spartronics to our legacy sponsor who has supported us every year since we started, Westside Pizza and especially owners Maureen and Tom Daniels!
