Join Chill Out for their New Member Information Session

Chill Out, an award-winning student-led robotics team, is inviting high school students in the Edmonds School District to join their team. The team is hosting a new member information session on Saturday, Sept. 23 at Mountlake Terrace High School. During the session, attendees will have the opportunity to see the team’s robot in action, learn about the team’s participation in the FIRST Robotics Competition, and discover mentor volunteer opportunities.

Chill Out had a successful season last year, winning two events and qualifying for the World Championships. The team is now focused on building on this momentum through workshops that will cover various areas including manufacturing and design, marketing and graphic design, communication, and establishing company sponsorships.

The team is open to students of all high school grades, even freshmen, and no prior experience is necessary. The team provides support and guidance through volunteer mentors, who are industry professionals in fields such as engineering, programming, product management, finance, leadership, electronics, and manufacturing.

Chill Out’s regular meeting schedule is on Tuesdays and Thursdays, with additional meetings on Saturdays during the build and competition season from January to April.

For area businesses interested in supporting the team, sponsorship opportunities are available. Businesses can inquire about these opportunities by contacting [email protected].
