Today's HERO OF THE WEEK are the Rising RhinoBots and the wonderful folks at FIRST! Also known as Neeraja Arvind (Mentor/Coach) Chao Li (Mentor/Coach), Sriram Arvind, Captain Darrick Li, and Surya Arvind!

The Rising Rhinobots are part of the Elmbrook School District and a First Tech Challenge Robotics Team. They are an Inspire Award winning team (the top accolade in the FTC program) in the regional Wisconsin Championships and qualified for the Wisconsin State Championships each of the last two years.


Recently FIRST and the Rhinobots came by the SSNC to put on a show and kick off some STEM based programming coming to the SSNC! Teams of up to 10 kids will build LEGO®– based robots and develop research projects based on real-world scientific challenges! We're so excited to have FIRST part of the SSNC community and all they bring on the STEM front!

We also can't wait to see what type of robotic wonders the youth of our community will come up with! For bringing STEM into our community... For the creative creations they make... for the award winning robots they design... we want to thank the Rising Rhinobots and FIRST for the impact they make teaching youths how fun science can be! That's why they are our... HERO(es) OF THE WEEK!
