FLL Team #45639
The new FIRST Lego League program at Fox Trail Elementary is in it's rookie year. In this program, students grades 4th-5th will use LEGO to build a competition robot and to learn about design and FIRST core values. The student-mentors from the WiredCats will help them along the way.
Flamingo Elementary Vex Team
On Wednesdays, the Wiredcats go to Flamingo Elementary to mentor their VEX IQ team, which is open to students grades 4th-5th.
Fundraisers @ Publix
Members of the team go out to Publix to spread the word of FIRST and WHS Robotics, while also accepting donations.
The Wiredcats partner up with restaurants around the county to host family nights where a percentage of the profits come back to benefit us.
Car Washes @ Azteca
The Wiredcats hold occasional car washes to, not only raise funds for the program, but to give back to the community
Motorola Innovation Showcase
Every year, the Wiredcats attend the Motorola Innovation Showcase, which is hosted by one of our sponsors. Here, we showcase our FRC and FTC robots and connect with teams in the area.
