5024 is a team that strives to be a part of our community. We are constantly promoting STEAM in our school, through our local London community, and online from our wide selection of social media sites.


Team 5024 volunteers with the London Children’s Museum, participating in a multitude of workshops to promote STEAM based learning among our city’s youth population, finding fun ways to introduce these ideas to children. This year, we hosted a five day camp over the summer. Through this camp students of differing backgrounds were able to experience robotics first hand, some for the first time. Children were introduced to coding and engineering and were able to learn through play. We saw young minds become passionate and enamored with FIRST and STEAM.

STEAM Week is an outreach event that 5024 brought to HB Beal at the start of 2023. From Monday to Friday, we provided new STEAM based activities to students who were willing to participate during lunch. Activities such as jumping origami frogs or dry ice launchers gave students opportunities to experience STEAM in a fun environment. We also set out battery collection throughout the weeks to give our students a way to safely dispose off used batteries. In total, we collected around 200lbs of batteries.


Our team creates a practice field at a local elementary school in our area. This field is available to all FRC teams under the Thames Valley District School Board. Local teams work together to create game components to contribute to the field. 


H.B. Beal’s Grade 8 Night has proven to be a great opportunity for us to find individuals who are interested in STEAM based learning. We educate them on our FRC team, and FIRST as a whole.


Raider Robotics hosts exciting info sessions at elementary schools and other locations. We attended STEAM night at both Tecumseh Public School and at Oxbow Public School. Both events had approximately 75 kids in attendance.

Raider Robotics carried over our FIRST Lego Camp to Trafalgar Public School. We build excitement for FIRST and STEAM, with the goal of inspiring students to come to Beal and join our robotics team.
