“Robot Day” Proclamations Shine Spotlight on STEMRobot Day Proclamations

Members of FIRST Robotics Competition Team 2761 “IronHorse Robotics” from Clovis North High School love STEM and want everyone in their agriculture and sports-driven area to know it.

In an effort to bring attention to the area’s robotics programs and teams through their local governments, the team successfully petitioned the Clovis City Council to proclaim an official “Clovis Robot Day,” which the team used to help bring awareness to STEM, holding activities and speaking to Council members about why their STEM programs need more funding. Not content to stop there, the team successfully obtained two other proclamations for neighboring offices: "Fresno Robot Day" and "Madera Robot Day." Encouraged, the team then appealed to State Assemblyman, Jim Patterson of the 23rd Assembly District. As a direct result of the team’s efforts, June 27 is now designated as "California Robotics Technology Day." On June 27, 2016, the team displayed their robot at the state capital before the Assembly began, and demonstrated their robot for the members, appealing to them to push for more STEM funding in their schools. 

Thanks to IronHorse Robotics, a lot more people are celebrating STEM in California’s Central Valley.
