Throughout the years, we have sought opportunities to promote STEAM in our community.
We have established FLL teams, FTC teams, and even FRC teams.
We host competitions for FIRST Lego League and VEX Robotics.
We showcase our robots at events like the local airshow and our annual FLL Fun Day.
The Open Hive
This year, the Metal Jackets began the new tradition of Open Hive night: a night in which key community figures involved in our outreach are invited to visit our shop and get a tour of our progress, view our various award submissions, and sit down for a banquet with us! Our 2023 Open Hive guest list included the Osbourn Park High School principal, three members of the Prince William County School Board, various officials from partnership organizations, and Virginia State Delegate Danica Roem!
