One of Gladiator Robotics' primary goals is to spread the idea and involvement of STEM. We achieve this through our multiple outreach programs. Johns Creek Gladiator Robotics members work with children of all ages through various events hosted throughout Johns Creek and its surrounding cities. Shown below are just a few of the ways we like to contribute to the community.
State Bridge Elementary School FLL Team
John’s Creek Founder’s Day Parade
Autrey Mill Middle School FLL team
Gladiator robotics members help the State Bridge Crossing Elementary School students learn how to make Lego robots for the First Lego League(FLL). It is always amazing to see the children’s curious faces as they learn about the inner workings of the STEM field.
The Founder’s Day Parade is an annual event that commemorates the commencement of Johns Creek the City. Many members of the Johns Creek community come out and line up to see the many organizations of the parade. We are the only STEM organization that makes an appearance and we show off our FRC robot by driving it through the streets.
Gladiator robotics members help the Autrey Mill Middle School students prepare Lego robots for the First Lego League(FLL). It is always incredible to watch these kids as they work through problems as they arise. And even more incredible to see what they accomplish. The Autry Mill FLL team won the Project Award on 12/14/19.
Parents, Students, and Teachers
We hope you are staying safe and doing well during these times. As we try to maneuver this year as safely as possible, Gladiator Robotics wants to invite you to our very own TinyBot competition. To ensure the safety and health of all members, the competitions and instructive sessions will be held completely virtually and teams will be limited to 5 or fewer members. Our main goal this year is to create a fun, challenging, and affordable competition despite the circumstances we are facing.
During the competition season, Gladiator Robotics will host a zoom call every week to help all the teams build their bot. The build season will be 8 weeks and an additional 4 weeks will be given for the teams to practice with their TinyBot. We will also be available on discord throughout the 12 weeks for teams who need individual help. The competition will be held virtually with our robotics team monitoring the field and scores. Each team will log in and be put in a queue, and your team will be able to drive their bot over wifi when it's their turn.
A few guidelines for the teams:
- Each team must have a coach over the age of 18
- A team can consist of 1-5 members
- $70 per TinyBot (Each team will need at least 1, but can have more as well)
Gladiator Robotics is so excited to invite everyone to our TinyBot competition! Please let us know by September 4th if you have a team that would like to participate. Reach out if you have any questions and we can't wait to see everyone's TinyBots!
