1511 Advocates for STEM Education on Capitol Hill

Monday, June 23 2014 by Leann

On Tuesday, June 17th a delegation of 8 students, two teachers and 6 engineer, community and parent mentors spent the day on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C. meeting with the offices of Senators Chuck Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand,  and the offices of Representatives Dan Maffei and Sean Patrick Maloney.  They received a private tour of the Capitol, courtesy of Senator Gillibrand, before a wonderful meeting with Congresswoman Louis Slaughter.  They finished off the day with a visit to Senate gallery to watch the voting a of the new Assitant Attorney General.   Rolling Thunder was one of 17 robotics teams from 14 states who were in DC as part of the 2014 FIRST National Advocacy Conference, organized by newly minted Championship Chairman's Team 27 Rush.  The students discussed with NY legislators the need for an increase in both the numbers and diversity of workers who are trained in STEM fields and how funding for Elementary, Middle and High School programs like FIRST Robotics can help achieve that goal.   Prior to the legislative meetings students received two days of training on how to effectively meet with legislators and specific information on the bills that establish funding for K-12 public schools.

We're going to Champs!

Sunday, March 16 2014 by Leann

We had a fantastic time at the inaugural New York Tech Valley Regional this past weekend at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, NY. There was a lot of great competition! Thank you to all of the volunteers, including many 1511 team members and friends for making it an awesome weekend!

We were seeded 7th, making it to the semi-finals, ultimately being eliminated by the winning alliance, Teams 1126 (from Webster), 229 (Clarkson), and 20. Congratulations to those winning teams! It was well-earned!

We also were honored with the Engineering Inspiration Award, which qualifies us for Championships. This is the 10th year in a row we have qualified for Champs! We are so excited to head back to St. Louis in April. And a big thanks to NASA who sponsors all the Engineering Inspiration winners by paying for the Championship registration fee!

 

Come check us and all the other great teams out at the Finger Lakes Regional March 27 - 29 at the Gordon Field House at RIT! It will surely be some great competition to see.
