Here’s a look at some of our past, present, and future appearances in the community. Please feel free to contact us with any questions!
Summer Enrichment Academy Volunteering– Members of the team volunteer at the Summer Program through the Cedarburg School District at Webster Transitional School. There are multiple entry level robotics classes that we volunteer at and help young inspired students. Mr. Kniess, our coach and a district PLTW teacher, is the mentor of these classes during the summer, widening the connections to the community through the club. The classes typically run mid-June as well as early-July.
Electronics Recycling Events – Cedarburg Light and Water, Cedarburg, WI – We volunteer with Cedarburg Light and Water and help staff at least one of the recycling events held multiple times each year at the Cedarburg Light and Water Office. While Cedarburg Light and Water hosts the event, our volunteers help with the unloading and processing of the electronics. Donations are always welcome when we volunteer with all donations benefiting the Robotics Team.
Festivals of Cedarburg, Cedarburg, WI – Our team takes on a very busy challenge of staffing a food booth through Cedarburg Festivals as a fundraiser. We work at both Strawberry Festival in late-June, and Wine and Harvest Festival in mid-September. It is a long weekend for all but worth all of the community exposure. On display is our robot and banner of sponsors shown to over one hundred thousand people over the span of the weekend.
Homecoming Parade – The team participates in the Cedarburg High School Homecoming parade, which goes through downtown Cedarburg. Our 2014 student-made float showed our robots from the 2013 and 2014 competitions, as well as two black and orange “Rock’em Sock’em” robots. The more recent float in 2015 displayed our 2015 robot carrying a crate full of rocks from Mars where we buried the competition.
