The Unite Online Challenge Sponsored by Google

The Unite  Online Challenge is an opportunity for students to engage in recognizing that they have the power to make a positive difference.  VEX teams can become leaders of change by making their programs more inclusive and validate that learning about STEM is more important now than ever before.

 

The Unite Online Challenge will be awarded to schools or organizations that demonstrates why robotics needs to be inclusive and not exclusive and what they are doing to help.

 

Video should promote the school or organization and how you are working to promote inclusiveness in STEM.  We want to see how your teams collaborate to enrich experiences for everyone. Share with us areas identified as exclusive, your plausible solution to changing that and your vision of an inclusive future.

exothermic_creation

Hello, we are Exothermic Robotics club, one of the oldest VEX robotics clubs in the world. Our story starts in 2006, when our club consisted of one team with five members. Now, in Exo’s fifteenth year, we have expanded to seven teams with five to seven members each. Exothermic robotics has come a long way in its inclusivity efforts, as we have members from several grades, skill levels, and schools. However, we will constantly be persevering towards expanding our club and building a more inclusive community.
