The Brush Bot Grant program was designed by the Tin Mints for Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts and other community groups. The program raises awareness of FIRST and generates funds for the team. The patch can be earned by scouts through building a basic robot. The team assembles the robot kits, created a video on how to build the robot and has promoted the program through Facebook and through various scout websites. To date, more than 300 patches and robotic kits have been sent all across the United States.
Thinking of doing a STEM program this year but don’t know where to start? Well then the girls of the GSEP FIRST Robotics Team 4575 have just the program for you. We have developed a FREE program that you can run in 4 to 8 meetings or run a week long day camp in STEM. You will explore:
Robots (through brush bots)
Scientific research and inventions
Team building and core values
Careers and future opportunities
Different ways to keep exploring STEM and FIRST Robotics programs.
