What are we all about?
Chill Out is a student led organization with the goal of engaging high school age students in hands-on applications of STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) concepts through robotics.
Chill Out is based at Mountlake Terrace High School in Mountlake Terrace, WA as part of Edmonds School District with membership open to students from Mountlake Terrace High School, in-district homeschooled high school students and high schools which do not offer an FRC program.
Chill Out participates as Team 1778 Chill Out in the Pacific Northwest District of the FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC). FRC is an annual event with a new game and objective each year where teams from around the world compete in Regional Events, District Championships and World Championships.
Team members apply critical thinking to design, build, troubleshoot, and repair robots while formulating creative solutions to complex problems necessary for the success of the team. They develop interpersonal and communication skills by working as a team with passionate reverence to the tenets of the FIRST ethos, Gracious Professionalism® and Coopertition®.
Throughout their journey, students will develop STEM skills, as well as learn business and leadership skills that can be applied in college, the workplace and the rest of their lives.
