All Girls Robotics Team
Nemonoid Robotics was founded as part of the Billings Career Center Engineering Club. Our team is built from girls participating in one of the three engineering classes at the Career Center. As a group we strive towards promoting math, science, and engineering in the community through different events. Since we are an all girls group we are especially interested in sparking interest in these fields for young girls, by showing them that it is a fun and rewarding career path. All of us plan to use the skills we have learned through this experience and apply them later in life.
FIRST Tech Challenge
FTC is designed for those who want to compete head to head, using a sports model. Teams of up to 10 students are responsible for designing, building, and programming their robots to compete in an alliance format against other teams. The robot kit is reusable from year-to-year and is programmed using a variety of languages. Teams, including coaches, mentors, and volunteers, are required to develop strategy and build robots based on sound engineering principles. Awards are given for the competition as well as for community outreach, design, and other real-world accomplishments.
