End of Year Surveys

At the end of each year, we ask for parents and students to take surveys to let us know what we did well and what we can work on. There are always things we can do better. We also use these surveys to find quotes for our website and judge and marketing materials.

If you are a parent, team member, or alumni please fill out the surveys below.

Parent Survey

Team Member Survey 
There is an option for a one on one meeting to discuss your role on the team, ways you can improve, and ideas to make the team better.I encourage each of you to do this. These meetings will happen over the summer.

Alumni Survey -  For new alumni and past alumni that want to keep us updated.

Texas Robotics Invitational Volunteering

We need volunteers for the Texas Robotics Invitational on June 19th and 20th in the Strake Competition Gym.

Setup is on the 19th and the competition is on the 20th.

If you have ever wanted to help run an event, this a great one to help run. Even if you don't volunteer, we would love for you to come to the event and cheer on the teams.

We also need to get media coverage for the event, so if you know anyone in the media who would be interested, please get us in contact with them. If you want to help with press releases and things we would be very grateful.
