Middle School Excellence Award Winners
The Iron Eagles team is committed to helping others get involved with robotics and sharing our skills with others. Throughout the years we have mentored new robotics teams at other schools, hosted tournaments and workshops, trained and mentored volunteers and teachers from other schools so they could start their own programs, and participated in Nashville’s Mini Maker Faire, allowing other students and attendees to see what it’s like to drive a robot!
