Alumni Association

Inspired by our twentieth season, we recently began the process of reconnecting our alumni with Bomb Squad. During the build season, we had many past members of Bomb Squad visit our building, talk to our students, and even let us borrow their own team memorabilia. Our 2015 season had an overall theme of looking at Bomb Squad’s extensive and successful history, and sharing memories with our alumni.  We even decided to name our robot “Two-Minute Warning” in honor of early Bomb Squad robots sharing the same name.

 

Now, into our twenty-second season, we wish to continue this spirit of reflection by encouraging our alumni to reconnect with the current team. To jump-start participation in our alumni association, we began a quarterly newsletter to introduce the idea to our past members. This newsletter is also intended to keep our alumni informed on what Bomb Squad is accomplishing and how we are changing. We hope to encourage all of our alumni to become involved with FIRST by showing them how much the program means to our students and even other past members.

 

The alumni association encourages donations to the team so that we may continue operating and inspiring our students to succeed. Bomb Squad has been gathering information about the education, location, and occupation of our diverse alumni so that we can assess and enhance the impact of our team in the lives of our students. We wish to reach as many of our original members as possible and aim to continue expanding our association to accommodate our ever-increasing pool of alumni.

 

Where are we now?
