Developing Critical Thinkers and Problem Solvers

Here is all our events where we developed ourselves as individuals. From sub-team organization to machine learning, we strive everyday to constantly learn and improve ourselves to better our community and get ready for industry standards. By developing ourselves into critical thinkers and problem solvers, we set ourselves up to sustain our team through community engagement and expand STEM to underserved and underrepresented populations.

Guarenteeing Team Sustainability Through Community Engagement

With these events, we hope to sustain Valor through community outreach events, including participating in the LEEF Mudstacle for two straight years and introducing FIRST to young students at the River Ridge Elementary STEM Night. By exposing younger students to FIRST, we strive to set them up for success in their desired STEM field. We also hope to keep our team sustainable by inspiring students to join FIRST at a young age and continue to the FRC program in high school. Once we guarentee team sustainability, Valor can continue to expand STEM to underserved and underrepresented populations.

Expanding STEM to Underserved and Underrepresented Populations

Through these events, Valor aspires to make STEM universal. Through participating in events, such as SACOT and NAC, we advocate to create opportunities for all students in STEM and integrate STEM into education at a national level. Once we expand STEM to underserved and underrepresented populations, we can ultimately achieve our mission to demand more STEM opportunities for young students within their high school and post high school careers, and encourage a culture that values STEM.
