1 UTEP Robotic Outreach Programs

2 COLLEGE OF ENGINEERING ENGINEERING.UTEP.EDU UTEP Robotic Outreach The UTEP Robotics Program is intended to attract students into engineering through their engagement in robotic competitions. The UTEP College of Engineering and its partners support several robotic competitions geared for students as young as 4th graders and up to high school students. Whatever your age group, robotic skills will be development, but more importantly team and life skills.

10 …to create a world where science and technology are celebrated….where young people dream of becoming science and technology heroes…. Dean Kamen, Founder FIRST ® : To transform our culture by creating a world where science and technology are celebrated and where young people dream of becoming science and technology leaders. Dean Kamen, Founder Vision Mission To inspire young people to be science and technology leaders, by engaging them in exciting mentor-based programs that build science, engineering, and technology skills, that inspire innovation, and that foster well-rounded life capabilities including self-confidence, communication, and leadership.

11 …to create a world where science and technology are celebrated….where young people dream of becoming science and technology heroes…. Dean Kamen, Founder We want to change the culture by celebrating the mind. We need to show kids that its more fun to design and create a video game than it is to play one. Dean Kamen Founder Dean Kamen, Founder FIRST ® :

Dean Kamen, Founder »501(c)(3) not-for-profit public charity »Founded 1989, by inventor Dean Kamen »Headquarters in Manchester, NH »Programs for K-12 –FIRST ® Robotics Competition (FRC ® ) for Grades 9-12 (ages 14-18), 1992 –FIRST ® Tech Challenge (FTC ® ) for Grades 9-12 (ages 14-18), 2005 –FIRST ® LEGO ® League (FLL ® ) for Grades 4-8 (ages 9-16; 9-14 in the U.S. and Canada), 1998 –Junior FIRST ® LEGO ® League (Jr.FLL ) for Grades K-3 (ages 6-9), 2005 »FIRST Place R&D facility and science & technology resource to the community Who We Are FIRST ® :

13 …to create a world where science and technology are celebrated….where young people dream of becoming science and technology heroes…. Dean Kamen, Founder FIRST ® Programs: FIRST Learning … never stops building upon itself, starting at age 6 and continuing through middle and high-school levels up to age 18. Young people can join at any level. Participants master skills and concepts to aid in learning science and technology through robotics, while gaining valuable career and life skills.

14 …to create a world where science and technology are celebrated….where young people dream of becoming science and technology heroes…. Dean Kamen, Founder …Its like life. You never have enough information. You never have enough time. The kit of materials is what you have in the warehouse. There are always competing things and you must have a strategy. Weve created a microcosm of the real engineering experience. Woodie Flowers FIRST National Advisor How It Works FIRST ® Robotics Competition:

15 …to create a world where science and technology are celebrated….where young people dream of becoming science and technology heroes…. Dean Kamen, Founder »Combines the excitement of sport with science and technology »Creates a unique varsity Sport for the Mind »Grade 9-12 students (ages 14-18) discover the value of education and careers in science, technology, and engineering How It Works FIRST ® Robotics Competition:

16 …to create a world where science and technology are celebrated….where young people dream of becoming science and technology heroes…. Dean Kamen, Founder »Mission is to INSPIRE, not EDUCATE »BUT look at what is involved: –Math (algebra, geometry, trig, calculus) –Science (physics, chemistry, experimentation) –Language arts (writing, public speaking) –Business (marketing, PR, fundraising) –Finance (accounting) –Computer Science (programming, 3D animation) –Fabrication (woodworking, metalworking) –Mentorship: Working side-by-side with professionals –Teamwork –Gracious Professionalism TM –Coopertition TM FIRST ® Robotics Competition:
