Sally Ride

Named after the first American woman in space, Sally Ride was our first robot to be made almost entirely out of fabricated, especially laser cut, parts. With this robot we were able to qualify for Worlds (under the Inspire award) and at worlds we won the Motivate Award. 

Outreach

We worked with CoachArt, a non profit that works with kids with chronic illnesses and hosted two four week coding clubs. We also hosted multiple design panel reviews with engineers from JPL, UCLA, and USC.
