Athens Renaissance Robotics
Athens Renaissance is located in rural North West Alabama. Since our rookie year in 2020, we have accumulated over twenty active members and five mentors. With over 500+ hours of community volunteer work, we have created a sustainable and collaborative STEM community. Community involvement is key and through our robot demonstrations, workshops, and FIRST support we have certainly made an impact. One of our current projects is a Hype Bot that allows us to bring some team 538 flare to community and FIRST events. Having hosted numerous workshops for our community it is very apparent we have made a lasting impact on our community through providing crucial STEM skills. We also visit colleges and universities where we show our robot and what we at Athens Renaissance do.
FIRST Tech Challenge
Our FTC team (team numbers 19459 and 121830) consists of 15 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students from Athens Renaissance Middle School and a teacher mentor.
