Our outreach department is made up of the Link and Vision Branches.
We curate workshops for students from K-12, fundraise money for our team and philanthropic efforts, design projects that positively impact our community, and thoroughly document our progress along the way.
In order to achieve our high goals, we meet up with industry leaders and educators, design curriculums with direct feedback from students, and actively work with institutions to improve our community.

ENGINEERING & CODING CLASSES
We have brainstormed, developed, curated, and marketed a curriculum for fifth to tenth graders. The curriculum is split into four sections: 5th-6th grade engineering, 7th-10th grade engineering, 5th-6th grade coding, and 7th-10th grade coding. The curriculum is also open-source, as it is listed in the "RESOURCES" tab in our website. We in fact encourage other robotics team to utilize our curriculum in order to provide education to young students. When formulating the curriculum, we consulted Wayne Chung, the associate professor, Product Design Program Chair for Carnegie Mellon, and he gave us knowledge about what new robotics and design recruits lack, and he told us what to look for in students when we are recruiting for our team. We plan to continue these classes into the summer as they were very profitable. We have donated many of the proceeds to our COVID-19 fundraiser for the Alameda County Food Bank.

ALAMEDA COUNTY COMMUNITY FOOD BANK
We have raised over $5,000 for the Alameda County Community Food Bank. We presented a check on June 15, and we talked with their staff members about the impact of our present and future contributions. The ACCFB services over 20,000 people every week, providing an essential resource in a dire time. We decided to fundraise due to the COVID-19 outbreak, and we raised money by holding engineering and coding classes, advertising on social media, and creating a website to make it easier for donors.
