Linking Engineering and Philanthropy (LEAP)

An offseason event to promote community engineering projects.

LEAP is an offseason event where we partner with a nonprofit to provide a challenge that teams brainstorm a solution for using skills learned through FIRST.

Description

Linking Engineering and Philanthropy (LEAP): LEAP is an offseason event where we partner with a new non-profit every year to provide a challenge that teams can engineer a solution for. In 2017, we partnered with OMSI (Oregon Museum of Science and Industry) to create an exhibit space targeted at teens. One of our main focuses is to apply our FIRST skills to benefit our community. LEAP provides the foundation needed to encourage other teams to start their own community engineering projects to improve the communities around them.
