Introducing… Our New T-Shirt Launcher!

Entrance to the new Falcon Stadium

After about a month of building our t-shirt launcher, Cyber Blue has finally revealed it to the public eye yesterday, on the opening night of our brand new stadium! This is a monumental significance for Perry Meridian High School because we have been sharing a football stadium with Southport High School for over forty years! Many alumni from our high school even came to visit the stadium. 

Successful turnout at opening night

Before launching t-shirts into the crowd, Cyber Blue members must pass a safety and knowledge test in order to shoot the device. The launcher ranges from 40-100 psi and must be handled with special consideration. Then we held a practice session before the game to test it out.

When the big day arrived, many Cyber Blue members got a chance to operate the t-shirt launcher and it was a total success! The crowd was hyped up about it and showed positive enthusiasm. Our new principal, Mr. Boedicker, even got a chance to shoot it into the crowd!

Overall, this was such a positive event and Cyber Blue hopes to shoot more t-shirts at future events soon!

IndyRAGE

Cyber Blue 234

Robotics All Girls Event

October 7, 2017

 

We are hosting the 3rd annual All Girl FIRST Robotics competition at Perry Meridian High School in Indianapolis, IN on October 7th, 2017. Pits will be open for set up on Oct 6th.

 

IndyRAGE is a unique event as it ties the FIRST competition together with an event focused on girls. Female motivational speakers and an open discussion led by women in STEM fields will give girls the opportunity to ask questions and get motivated about engineering and other STEM fields. Girls are also encouraged to try new roles at this event.

 

Pit crews are encouraged to be all-female. We recognize this as a significant challenge to teams, so this is not a requirement. Teams are encouraged to recruit new mentors for this event. This year we would like to challenge teams to bring along girls that have an interest in joining their team so they can experience a FIRST robotics off season competition.

 

Volunteers – Our goal is 100% female volunteers in every role. In some cases, due to the experience required, this may not be possible. In those specific cases, we will have an experienced volunteer provide coaching and training for a female interested in learning those roles.

 

The rules are simple- You must have an all-girl drive team (including coach).

We encourage you to bring your whole team, so they can cheer you on to success!

There will be judged awards.

Our mission is to empower girls to try something new during this event.

We are still in the planning stage for this year’s event so please follow us on twitter

@theIndyRAGE       or contact us at       theindyrage@gmail.com             for more information.

Entry fee to be determined ($100 in 2016).

 

Come join us for an empowering weekend!
