Western Digital Engineering Day
In the summer of 2013, Western Digital invited MVRT to their annual Engineering Day. MVRT had the chance to demonstrate our robot with Team #846, The Funkey Monkeys. Aside from the demonstration, Western Digital held a small picnic for the invited FRC teams, and congratulated us with a certificate of appreciation. It was a great opportunity to interact with high-tech industry professionals and showcase our robot from ultimate ascent.
BAE Systems Diversity Fair
In June 2010, MVRT visited BAE systems and demonstrated our robot for BAE employees and got a tour of BAE facilities.
BAE Systems/SAE Motorfest
MVRT, along with other FIRST teams, demoed its robot in BAE System’s annual Motorfest. At this event, our members reached out to the public about FIRST and STEM education, while learning themselves about future careers in engineering.
BAE Toys for Tots
Monta Vista Robotics Team, along with other FIRST teams, provided the primary volunteer force for BAE System’s Toys for Tots event. Thousands of people from underprivileged families came to benefit from this extraordinary event. Activities we volunteer for include picking out toys, running games, and preparing food. MVRT also demoed our robot to promote STEM education and FIRST’s values to the underprivileged community.
Intuitive Surgical Demo
MVRT was invited by Intuitive Surgical Inc. to demo our robot and participate in their mini Logomotion competition. We spoke to Intuitive Surgical employees to promote FIRST and gain potential mentors for the FIRST community.
Intuitive Surgical Factory Tour
MVRT members have toured the Intuitive Surgical factory for the last three years. The students gained valuable experiences by handling professional surgical robotics equipment produced by Intuitive Surgical, as well as insight into how robotics could be applied to real life.
MVRT was invited by Symantec to demonstrate our robot and give a presentation at their intern lunch event.
Lockheed Martin Educational Outreach Fair
MVRT was invited to the Lockheed Martin headquarters to demo its robot to Lockheed Martin’s employees and find new mentors.
Lockheed Martin Presentation
Lockheed Martin gave a career presentation to MVRT. Members were shown possible jobs at Lockheed Martin that they could pursue—providing them with insight on how they could apply the knowledge they learn in MVRT to real life.
