Local Robotics Team Seeks Help

Updated:
SNOW HILL, Md.- Worcester County's NASA House Robotics Team is looking to grow in numbers. The goal of the team is to give students the opportunity to understand science, technology, engineering and math - but they need the community's support.

Team Titanium-Wrecks is a private, non-profit team that welcomes any students grades 9-12 from any school system, public, private or homeschooled. They are Worcester County's branch of TEC Foundation as well as NASA's House Team for Worcester County. The old firehouse in Snow Hill was donated to the team to provide students with work space. 

Co-lead Paul Suplee and Will Mast are both dedicated mentors for Worcester County's NASA House Robotics's Team.

"On the shore, NASA has four house teams and they've organized it by counties. The nice thing about being the Worcester County team is that we are not restricted to one particular school so we cover the entire county and it's a lot area," said Mast.

Team Titanium-Wrecks started as a private team with six students and has blossomed over the last year. To date there are more than 20 students.

The goal of the team is to give students the opportunity to understand and promote STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) by offering them the ability to conceptualize, finance, build, promote, troubleshoot and restore robotics projects through VEX and FIRST Robotics Programs.

"We still have some kids that are still not involved in technology and we strive to for. It's not just robotics, submersibles, food science labs and anything to get kids involved," Suplee said.

The development of leadership skills and community involvement is an inherent benefit of participating in our team fundraising and community events.

"We want to teach our kids the importance of raising money and putting that money back into programs," Suplee said.


Worcester County's NASA Robotics Team is set to host its second annual Bots n' Tots Halloween Bash, with a portion of the proceeds benefiting Believe In Tomorrow's beach respite program.

Tickets are $10 a piece and includes buffet. Local NASA teams will have activity tables, silent auction, 50-50 and more.

The event will be held this Saturday, Oct. 25, from 3-6 p.m. at Seacrets in Ocean City.
