VEX Robotics at MCC

Program Focus

The focus of the Manchester Community College Robotics is 5th-12th grade students in the greater Manchester area, especially women and minorities. Our program is part of the Girl Powered initiative to recruit more women for STEM.

Program Success

MCC Robotics has worked with local schools and organizations to create 126 new VEX robotics teams in NH over the past two years. The college hosted several robotics competitions and workshops. The program sent several teams to compete at the VEX World Championship and they did very well in their divisions.

2020 Goals

  • Fundraise $6,000 to upgrade the MCC Robotics VEX U robots (4) to the new V5 control system
  • Support the new robotics teams created by the Governor’s NH Robotics Education Development Program and teach them how to be sustainable with proper training and professional development for mentors and teachers
  • Grow the number of VEX teams – with a goal of 300 total teams
  • Create new opportunities for students to have hands-on experiences with robots, whether through demonstrations or team competitions
  • Empower and incentivize the program’s mentors and coaches with resources to effectively run the programs at their schools, as well as remove any financial barriers

We need your help to reach these important goals. All donations will directly support the MCC Robotics program and its community outreach. Sponsorship opportunities are listed below:

  • VEX U Team Sponsorship – $1,500 (4 available)

MCC Robotics Supports Sleep in Heavenly Peace

On Saturday, January 18th MCC Robotics is hosting a charity robotics competition at Manchester Community College. A portion of the proceeds will go to Sleep in Heavenly Peace to increase awareness of the wonderful work this non-profit is doing.

On Thursday, February 13th, the Manchester Community College student body is partnering with Sleep in Heavenly Peace, a charitable organization that builds and delivers free new wooden beds, mattresses, and bedding to kids 3-to-17 years of age that do not have beds of their own. Their goal to build and deliver 26 beds for local kids who are currently “bedless”. Leadership, fundraising and project coordination is being provided by the MCC Cultural Exchange Club, MCC Veterans, and MCC Student Senate, working in conjunction with the Hillsborough County NH Chapter of Sleep in Heavenly Peace. The MCC-SHP Build will take place in the Multi-Purpose Room and adjacent areas on the Manchester Community College campus between 10am and 3pm on February 13, 2020. Delivery to the home and bed set-up will occur thereafter by small teams of college student and SHP volunteers.
