Back in 2019 the Rebel Robotics, coached by Shannon Albert, set out to compete in the FIRST Lego League Competition. The theme that year, City Shaper, required teams to identify a problem in the community and design a solution in the Innovation Project. Shannon recently reached out to share her team decided to turn the Innovation Project into an innovated reality.
Shannon shared, "the theme was to discover a public space in the community and come up with a way to improve it." The team wanted to figure out a way to update the playground in Chamberlain Park in Cuba, NY. The Rebel Robotics team decided to implement their plan. The Rebel Robotics team met with the town mayor and local Chamber of Commerce to share their idea.
Through school and community support, the team has raised over $100,000 in private donations to update the playground. Phase 1 of the project is complete with Phase 2 set for the Spring of 2023.
We congratulate the 2019 Rebel Robotics team for turning your great idea into an amazing community resource!
