Seacoast School of Technology

On Wednesday, January 22nd, Tanya and Panda went to the Seacoast School of Technology to present about logic gates! At the high school, they presented to around 40 students in 10th through 12th grade with previous experience coding in a variety of languages, including C#, Java, and Python, but especially C++. Logic gates were the next logical step because they are the basic building blocks of any digital system, and it’s important to understand what you’re actually coding. After presenting the different symbols and truth tables to explain each logic gate, the students were given an 8-page set of practice questions where they manipulated logic gates and practiced using the appropriate symbols and diagrams. Tanya and Panda also fielded many questions about the FIRST robotics programs and the different responsibilities of the different subgroups of our robotics team, and how they originally became interested in robotics competitions like FIRST. We hope to visit the Seacoast School of Technology again and integrate our ideas into their community outreach programs as well, fostering a long term relationship with them.
