Community Outreach

CTHS Robotics has reached out and helped their community and school in many ways.  Below is a summary of a few of the projects our teams have completed.

Project #1 

CTHS Robotics responded to the Covid pandemic by researching needs in their community.  Through contacts at local hospitals, businesses, churches, and the school district it was determined that face shields were in high demand.  After dozens of prototypes and lots of product testing the teams created a high quality face shield incorporating their skills in 3D modeling and printing.  The face shields were made available to teachers, staff and workers around Alaska so that everyone can be safe and comfortable in their everyday environment.  The teams completed over 1000 shields for free, many with fabric attachments that hang from the shield to the chest.

Project #3

We have also fixed electric mixers for the culinary arts program so they have the resources to learn and create culinary skills. Team members repaired 6 professional grade mixers from the culinary department of CTHS that were broken.  The department was preparing to purchase new mixers but asked if our team could possibility repair the older ones first.  The team was successful and saved the school thousands of dollars.

Project #5

Robotics team members designed, 3D printed, and installed PETG plastic parts to fix over 100 broken pneumatic chairs at CTHS.  The estimated cost for repair from the chair company was $10,000 and the replacement estimate was over $20,000.  The team repaired all the chairs for less than $100.
