Why does inclusion matter to you?
I value diversity and inclusion because oftentimes, people are discriminated against because of reasons out of their control, and this is prevalent in STEM especially. There should be inclusion for people of all races and all different types of people, and this should be welcomed in our FIRST teams.
Meet the students of Hanford High School Robotics!
Thanks to the Hanford High School Robotics teams 8099, 17103, and 20093 for letting us stop in for a team meeting!
These FTC teams had a great season of building, competing, and mentoring other FTC and FLL teams.
These students are community focused and are looking forward to supporting new teams in their area!
