STEM DAY

Our annual STEM Event invites middle school students from the Greater Richmond region to engage in hands-on demonstrations from various STEM organizations in our local community. Presenters in the past have included Spit for Science, CodeVA, EarthHacks, our school’s Math and Science National Honor Societies, and a demonstration of Team 422’s robot. At the event, we also host a teacher’s school supplies drive to support Richmond Public Schools teachers and administration.

FLL TOURNAMENT

The Mech Tech Dragons are proud to host the longest-running FIRST Lego League Competition in Central Virginia since 2001. We invite teams in our local area to compete and donate to a peanut butter drive to be donated to our local food bank. Last year, 25 FLL teams attended and raised peanut butter for our local foodbank.

WOMEN IN STEM

The Mech Tech Dragons endeavors to uplift women in STEM, hosting and attending various events for this purpose. We have partnered with a Girls in STEM Club at Holman Middle School for two years, teaching them about the FIRST Robotics Competition and demonstrating our robot. We hosted a workshop for the Goochland Girl Scouts Troupe, giving them the opportunity to build bristlebots, program with ev3 kits, drive our robot, and learn about STEM and FIRST fundamentals. We have also attended events like Camp Diva and Full STEAM Ahead, where girls in our local community could learn about STEM through fun, engaging, hands-on activities.
