Event Description

Skillpoint Alliance is a local nonprofit group that works to promote education in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math throughout Austin and Central Texas.  On top of being a great organization, they are our partners for our upcoming Crawfish Boil on May 4th, and they are looking for volunteers to help out with an upcoming robotics tournament on Saturday, March 2nd.  
 
This is a great chance to meet some of the people and see the type of programs we are working to support.  Also,  every YPE member that makes it out to volunteer will be eligible to win a pair of tickets to the YPE Crawfish Boil in May!  Two pairs of tickets will be given out that day!

The STEM Council at Skillpoint Alliance is in need of volunteers for Austin’s first ever Double FTC Qualifier this spring. We’re seeking 150 adult volunteers to make the event a success and we need all the help we can get!
 
FTC- A worldwide program through U.S. FIRST®, FIRST® Tech Challenge (FTC) is a hands-on robotics program where teams of high school students design, build, and program robots.  Teams, including coaches, mentors and volunteers, are required to develop strategies and build robots based on sound engineering principles. At local tournaments like the Austin Double Qualifier on March 2nd, awards will be given for the robot game as for well as for community outreach, design, and other real-world accomplishments.

2013 DOUBLE FTC QUALIFIER

Challenge! More than 40 local high school teams will compete and cooperate in an alliance format with and against other teams.
