Community

The Helping Hounds Program

The Helping Hounds Program is a community service program that was founded by Saints Robotics in 2009. Through our program, we have helped our community with our outreach activities, including volunteering at Northwest Harvest and at the FIRST Lego League Tournaments. The Helping Hounds also demonstrate our robots at many elementary school assemblies and science fairs to inspire young children with our robotics program. We also led robot demonstrations at the first Robothon Tournament, as well as at Crossroads Mall. One of our missions is to inspire students to pursue careers in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics).
