Outreach Events 2020
The Alabama Astrobotics Team participates in many outreach events each cycle. Events range from on campus demonstrations to elementary school visits, with the aim to inspire students to be involved and interested in STEM activities and careers. We are always looking for new outreach opportunities!
E-day ~ October 3, 2019
E-day is an Open House hosted by the college of Engineering designed to share information about University admissions and programs. We set up displays in our lab and the SERC to help families and students to find out about our competition and understand more about our robot. We had over thirty students in the lab at once!
Family Weekend ~ September 20, 2019
Family weekend is a University event where prospective students along with their families can come to meet engineering student design teams. We displayed our robot and set up some prototype parts so that those interested could get a better understanding of our mission.
Pack 90 ~ September 15, 2019
Pack 90 Cub Scouts earned their robotics patches after observing the Alabama Astrobotics' Stressy Bessy in action! The troop was encouraged to have fun while learning about how robots can be used for space exploration.
Reach to the Stars ~ September to October, 2019
For part of Alabama Astrobotics' Outreach Cycle we bringing back our beloved US map! As the year continues, red pins will represent team members while black pins will represent visitors. Our ultimate goal is to illustrate how far we can share the the love of robotics during this 2019-2020 season.
