Community Outreach

       For Ironclad Robotics, family is everything. We incorporate this fundamental virtue by extending our family tree throughout the Kankakee County Community and abroad. Ironclad has made many strives in our community through sponsorships with local  including e2i, CSL Behring, Olivet Nazarene University, Precision Piping, the BBCHS Academic Foundation, Valley Glass, F.E. Moran, and many more. We also hold demonstrations throughout the community including the local Farmer’s Market and Friendship Festival.

       Our goal is to spread FIRST ®  and STEAM values throughout the community, and it begins with our elementary schools. Ironclad Robotics currently mentors two FIRST ®  Lego League ® (FLL ® ) Robotics teams at St. George and Grace Christian Academy Schools.  Ironclad prides itself in having the honor to work with young minds of today that will grow into innovators and game changers of tomorrow.

       Our family also extends past  Kankakee County to other regions of Illinois with such collaborations with other FIRST ® Robotics Teams especially FRC ® Team #2338 Gear It Forward. Because Ironclad is more than just robots, it’s a family.
