Mission
Our mission is to inspire young people to be science and technology leaders, by engaging them in exciting mentor-based programs that build science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) skills in a diverse urban setting with a diverse student body where we create a culture of acceptance, pride, respect, and excellence.
A Great OpportunityHelpThe nonprofit has used this field to provide information about a special campaign, project or event that they are raising funds for now.

Our annual project is to design, build and program a robot for FIRST Robotics Competition.  We purchase materials and parts and pay for registration fees and other competition-related expenses.  Our students compete for robot awards and judged awards recognizing their community activities. When we aren't competing, we hold numerous community outreach events in Connecticut with a focus on New Haven and New Haven County.  In addition to these expenses, we regularly update our robotics workroom with furniture, tools, equipment, and computers so that so that our mentor-based program fully engages our students in the design and fabrication of robots and is able to teach the students science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) skills.

Background

Elm City Robo Squad began in 2000 as part of a physics class at Hill Regional Career High School, an inner-city, New Haven high school. A few years later, we became an out-of-school time (OST) program using a basement workroom. In 2006, the team moved to a robotics room on the school’s main floor. Since 2001 we have participated in FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) robotics competitions where a team of about twenty-five students annually designs and builds a robot as part of a challenge. We began with only two engineers mentoring and now have nineteen mentors. In seventeen years, we have influenced the lives of more than 450 ethnically diverse high school students. In New Haven, where 25% of students don’t graduate, our students graduate, attend college and receive scholarships.

CEO Statement

 One of Elm City Robo Squad’s greatest attributes that sets us apart is our immense diversity. We are very fortunate to reside at Career High School, an inner-city, magnet school, in New Haven, Connecticut, as it provides us with students from various ethnic, religious and cultural backgrounds. Our student diversity translates to multiple perspectives and problem-solving approaches to any challenge that we face. In addition to ethnic, religious, and cultural diversity, we also have gender diversity. Our diverse girls dominate our scouting and pit crews, and Chairman’s and safety teams. In 2016, one of our girls became a competition robot driver and continues to do so today. Having a girl driver has been inspirational and it caused other girls aspire to do the same. We are proud to provide a program that empowers students, and especially girls, to do anything that they desire.

Another attribute that sets our team apart is our surprisingly prominent presence in the FIRST robotics community despite our team’s relatively smaller size and limited resources. Even though our students have other commitments and responsibilities, Elm City Robo Squad is able to hold numerous outreach and community activities annually. These activities bring communities together as we work in partnership to achieve a common goal: building a brighter future for our students. Although the design, construction, and programming of a robot is the central activity, our overall goal is to educate students and build people, not robots. Our commitment to community service is exemplified by our FIRST Chairman’s Award wins for 2014-2018, and our 2017 FIRST Gracious Professionalism® Award; these awards honored us for best representing a model for other teams to emulate and best embodies the purpose and goals of FIRST robotics.

Our presence is notable at competitions. As a veteran team, we engage our fellow teams. While at competitions, our students can be seen buried deep in other teams’ pit areas offering assistance and parts. We provided on-the-spot support to numerous teams competitions because we always strive to help before we strive to win. We are known as a team always ready to lend a hand and that embodies the FIRST ethos of Gracious Professionalism®. And while we place winning secondary, we are proud to have won a number of FIRST competitions and we have been the Connecticut State Robotics Champions for four years since the event’s inception in 2013 by the Connecticut Interscholastic Athletic Conference.

Another thing that sets Elm City Robo Squad apart from other teams is that even though we are relatively small, we manage to attend eight events a year and we strive to add more to our calendar (a present goal is to compete at the Indiana Robotics Invitational). We raise all the funds needed to operate through grants, corporate sponsorship, and various fundraisers. We recruit diverse students by offering a fee-free program - we don’t charge membership or travel fees -- and by not having rigid membership requirements. We recruit students that do not have the resources to be on a pay-to-play team. All students are welcome regardless of time commitment. This is important in the inner city where students have limited access to transportation for activities. We believe that if we can touch the lives of many students with even a small amount of education that this is better than nothing at all. This translates into more students interested in school and STEM, and more students likely to graduate, go to college, and even win scholarships. Based on mentor observation, Elm City Robo Squad has a 100% graduation rate with 99% of our students attending college (1% joining the military) and most major in STEM fields. Many have received scholarships. This is compared to all students in the New Haven Public School system where 22.5% didn't graduate in 2016 (Conn. State Dept. of Ed.).

Board Chair Statement

The governance challenges we face are financial and organizational. We are always looking for new funding sources which can be difficult because our fiscal sponsor is a public school and not a 501(c)(3) nonprofit. In the next several years we will continue to review our organization and our tax designation so that we can determine a solution that is a best for us, whether it be another fiscal sponsor or incorporation and our own IRS nonprofit designation. We also will continue to review our organization structure and handbook and make adjustments to best fit our program. For school year 2017-2018 our financial challenges included losing the monetary contribution from our school and a funding cut from a major sponsor of FIRST robotics (applied to all sponsored programs); we continue to look for new income sources and to cultivate multiple income streams.

Our governance successes include successfully integrating our students into managing various aspects of the program.  We have also been successfully managing our funding and reaching our goals for sustaining and improving the program.

Programs
Description
The Elm City Robo Squad robotics program is an out-of-school time (OST) program designed to inspire young people to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). Our students design and build complex robots, learn business skills, win scholarships, and simply have a great time. The program is based at Hill Regional Career High School, an inner-city school with a diverse student population, and is open to high school students, young women and men in grades nine through twelve, in New Haven, Connecticut. Our primary robotics education is focused around the FIRST® (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) Robotic Competition (FRC) program and we are FRC® veteran team number 558 established in 2000.

FIRST engages students in robotics programs that help them become well-rounded contributors to society. We emphasize community outreach activities and teach the community about STEM and FIRST age-group robotics programs. Our mentors teach students to design and fabricate parts and build and program robots. We compete at local, regional and worldwide events. Competitions provide students with opportunities to hone skills, scout, meet other students, talk to judges, and perform maintenance. Although the design, construction, and programming of a robot is the central activity, our overall goal is to build people, not robots.

Program Comments
CEO Comments

Our strategic direction is to sustain and grow our robotics program and STEM education, which is challenging. We presently operate with a smaller budget than most successful veteran FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) teams. This limits our program in the number of competitions that we can participate in, the extent that we can develop our robot technology, and the types of outreach we can provide. With program growth and additional money, we can do things like re-engineering our robot between competitions, build a practice robot and use it to recruit new rookie teams by letting them borrow the robot for off-season competitions and use it as a learning tool. With more money, we can have the opportunity to attend more competitions where we hone our engineering skills, scout for teammates by evaluating other teams’ performances, skills and robot designs, and talk to judges about our real-life experiences with designing and building our robot, and where we perform maintenance for our robot requiring us to quickly solve problems. These types of experiences help us to educate our students more and help us to educate more students.

 As part of our business plan we have a strategic direction for the next 10 years with major goals. Our goals are to sustain and grow our robotics program and STEM education. In order to obtain these goals, we look to raise $25,000 for capital improvements (3-year plan, 50% raised), host a major FIRST Robotics Competition event in New Haven (5-year plan, we submitted Hill House as a venue last fall but the decision was made by New England FIRST, our regional affiliate, to use Fairfield University), and incorporate and become a 501(c)(3) nonprofit (this will increase our eligibility to apply for grants and will provide new organization structure), and grow our community outreach activities to provide even more focus in the City of New Haven (as a current initiative, this will contribute to the future success of children in New Haven).
