Applying engineering to robotics
Eastman team members at various sites mentor high school students participating in the FIRST Robotics Competition, an international contest in which student teams design, construct and program industrial-sized robots to perform specific tasks. The robots then compete against one another in regional and district events throughout the world and the event provides an opportunity for students to apply engineering and problem solving skills in a team environment.
