"More than Robots"

The Robert Shaw Center was built in order to help spread interest in the fields of Science Technology Engineering Art and Math (S.T.E.A.M) . Meaning it isn't just used for robotics. It has a variety of uses, while it is mostly used as a build site for the FRC teams the RSC can be also used for banquets and large group teaching, and with its arsenal of tools and machinery it can also function as a build site for student engineers.
