In fall 2020, we established Wired Waves, a service project aimed at protecting and restoring our coast by applying the knowledge and skills we are acquiring from FRC. Early on, our Wired Waves management team recognized that the key to protecting our environment is educating the youth.
The younger generations are tasked with solving our greatest environmental problems, so we aim to shape them into informed, open-minded individuals. In the 2021 season, we launched three main initiatives: an educational robot, recycling sculptures, and marine life presentations.
