Phantom X Nicky Davis
Collaborating with Nicky Davis, a local Houston street artist, we made a back plate mural for our pits, learned about how to make a brand, and created our current logo and ghost mascot "Billy Bob."
Nicky Davis was a great connection to make, and we can't wait to make more art with him!
Phantom X Brookwood Community
Our work with the Brookwood Community allowed for us to learn more about the obstacles facing adults with disabilities. The Brookwood Community is a local organization that provides housing and employment for adults with disabilities. Over 80% of adults with disabilities are unemployed, and we set out to help change this. We created custom CAD tools for the residents of the Brookwood Community to use, allowing them to work independently and earn a stable income.
Phantom X Woodlands Robotics
Throughout the season our team ran FLL and FTC camps for kids as young as 6 to as old as 15. Our summer camps helped to spread FIRST and robotics to over 600 kids! Working with the next generation of engineers and scientists has helped us learn about leadership and effective teaching methods, and we are excited to see where their robotics journeys will take them.
Phantom X India stem foundation
One of our teammates spoke with the India STEM Foundation about FIRST and FTC, along with what it means to be in robotics. Our work with them was incredible, we learned a lot from them and we taught them a lot about FIRST and robotics/STEM in general. It was an amazing experience.
Phantom X San jacinto
We gave a presentation to teams at the San Jacinto Kickoff about how we won Inspire and gave tips to them for their notebook and presentation skills. This event was a great experience for our presentation skills, and to support our local FTC community!
Phantom X Baker ripley
We worked with FabLab and Baker Ripley Community Centers to teach kids about circuits and programming the WeDo 2.0. We had a great time with the kids and taught them a lot about FIRST, FLL Jr., and even FTC. We hope to continue to solidify our relationship with them so that we can make a bigger impact in our community by teaching.
Phantom X khou
We participated in a TV interview on KHOU’s TV Talk Show “Great Day Houston” which has aired since 2005. Diya discussed First Lego League (FLL) and FTC Programs to help spread the word about Robotics and FIRST. They covered core values, robot design, FIRST Programs, and competition. The feature reached over one million viewers!
Phantom X houston chronicle
Our team was featured in the Houston Chronicle newspaper, covering our success and how we became a team. We had a great time being interviewed and being able to share our personal experiences with everything FIRST, FTC, and STEM has to offer!
