Jarod Bechard & Megan Gooch
CK Cyber Pack

Most might remember Jarod, just returned from Rotary Exchange to Japan. Jarod has recently joined an organisation called FIRST Robotics, via the local FIRST robotics team called the "CK Cyber Pack". Their mission is to inspire young people interested in science and technology through the robotics program; building science, engineering, and technology skills, and fostering life skills like self-confidence, communication, and leadership. He would compare it to his experience in scouting as it is youth-led, leadership building, and most importantly, free! The team competes in a a yearly robotics competition with a robot that they have designed, built, and programmed themselves. The robot building season is quite a ways away;they are looking to do outreach in the community, gain exposure, find sponsors, etc.
