Kids Acting Out Science

Welcome to Howell FTC robotics team KAOS’s website! In Robotics we work with CAD, STEM (Science Technology Engineering and Math), and FIRST to teach kids many things in the world of engineering. First means For Inspiration & Recognition of Science & Technology. FTC Robotics teaches us things like Gracious Professionalism, Innovation, Discovery, Impact, Inclusion, Teamwork, and Fun. CAD stands for Computer Aided Design. There are many CAD software programs, our team uses Fusion 360 to design our robot. Members of our team define FIRST as:

"Robots competing against each other without violence." - Caitlin. 
"Students coming together and working together to meet goals and learn new things" - Lainey. 

As a team, we work together on many jobs. There are three main categories of jobs: the build team, the programming team, and the business team. Our mentors describe these jobs as:

"The build team builds the robot and they design by brainstorming and using CAD for prototyping."
- Mr. Tschirhart (Build team mentor.) 
"For programming we use Java to program the robot to do specific tasks." - Mrs. Powder (Programming team mentor.)
"The business team is in charge of our team notebook, Finances, outreach and the team plan."
- Mr. Dennis (Business team mentor.) 
"This year, the business team is expanding to build a website and market our team on social media."
- Mrs. Bedford (Business team mentor)


We all come together to make the best team we can be.
We are a Fair Play team!
