The Chill Out team, led by students and winner of several awards, invites high school students from the Edmonds School District to join their team. The team is organizing an information session for new members on Saturday, September 23rd 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 opportunities to be volunteer mentors.

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

The team is open to students of all high school grades, including freshmen, and no previous experience is required. 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.

Regular Chill Out meetings are held on Tuesdays and Thursdays, with additional meetings on Saturdays during the build and competition season from January to April.

For local businesses interested in supporting the team, sponsorship opportunities are available. Companies can learn more about these opportunities by contacting [email protected].
