During the month of April, e-End has had many high-level guests to tour the facility. None higher than a group of future leaders of technology, from the 4H Robo Rangers Robotics Club. e-End had the privilege of helping to fund one of the teams, Team S.T.E.A.M. Powered, who are local to Frederick, MD.  Many Frederick County 4-H clubs focus on agriculture projects, but Robo Rangers focuses on robotics, teaching the basic concepts of engineering using Legos to build robots that perform specific tasks. Four-H robotics clubs help students work as a team to develop STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) skills.

The team recently participated in a FIRST Tech Challenge , where teams (10+ members, grades 7-12) are challenged to design, build, program, and operate robots to compete in a head-to-head challenge in an alliance format.

It was a great learning experience for the kids, as well as the parents that accompanied these bright minds.  e-End is open for group tours from government officials,  corporations, associations and STEM clubs.
