A Lydia Engelbreth is content marketing manager at Waupaca Foundry. She also serves as a mentor to the Waupaca High School WIRED robotics team.
Waupaca High School has had a robotics team fo the past six years; as of 2021 the team decided to change from VEX Robotics to FIRST Robotics. FIRST Robotics is a highly competitive international organization that has over 90,000 students competing in 34 countries. In their rookie season, they took home the Rookie Inspiration Award for its plans for community outreach and their build capabilities. Beyond that, at the second competition they were selected for the 3rd seed alliance and made it to the quarterfinals.
Lydia and members of the team invite you to dive into the world of STEM by learning about how the Waupaca FIRST Robotics teams are developing technical and life skills through hands-on experiences. The program will conclude with a live demonstration using their own robot.
Our free programs are on Mondays beginning at 6:30 PM.
If cancellation is required, an announcement will be made on Lakes 92.7FM, WILW 96.3FM and Facebook.
