Involvement in Our Schools and School District
The Highline School District is very supportive of Skunk Works Robotics and we are very supportive of them. The district provides our team with classroom and shop facilities and provides space for us to set up a practice field for FRC teams. Plans are underway to expand our space at the old Beverly Park Elementary school into a full-fledged regional robotics and STEM center that will benefit other Highline FRC teams and the community at large.
Skunk Works students conduct robotics clinics at local elementary and middle schools, and are typically active participants in student life at their own various high schools.
Every year, Skunk Works team members hold a "Tail Raiser" Spaghetti Dinner and fund raising auction This also gives us a chance to demonstrate our robots and show what FIRST is all about. We also auction off our team's services and skunk related items.
