Our team conducts continuous STEM outreach locally and abroad. In addition, we are committed to community service in our local community.
We've built a strong relationship with STEAMEx FRC 6832 over the past five years. The FEDS raised over $20,000 to help them pay for their full FRC registration 4 years in a row. This relationship is mutually beneficial because we've learned so much from this partnership! STEAMEx helped us with our winning Chairman's submission in 2020-2021 and invited us to engage with a global FRC community (E-Reach) during the pandemic!
Yuwa is an all girls school in rural India that uses sports and STEM education to combat child marriage. The FEDS raised funds to buy school supplies and donate Lego Mindstorm kits that helped them include a STEM focus in their curriculum.
International Rescue Committee (IRC)
Our donations of Lego Kits to the International Rescue Committee(IRC) are being used in after school programs with refugee children.
Annual STEM Book Drive
The FEDS collected 500+ STEM books for K-12 students. These books were donated to "Little Free Libraries" in the area with the aim of putting STEM information into the hands of more kids.
