Last month, the TT Electronics-IMS team in Perry, Ohio participated in a raffle to support a local charity called Sub Zero Mission. Perry raised $390 for the charity by raffling off a $100 gift card that TT Electronics generously donated for the event. The money was used to purchase 17 military grade sleeping bags. Other items donated to the charity were winter coats, socks, hats, gloves, and boots.
Last month, Steve Davies (CI Leader, IMS Rogerstone), participated in the first of a series of STEMworks workshops at Pentrepoeth School. Throughout the two-day session, eight teams of three students were tasked with developing a fairground ride that would hold 20 passengers and last for 30 seconds.
Each team was given Flowol 4 software and K’nex kits as tools to construct the project. All teams were involved in programming the ride with various speeds and direction changes utilising LED lighting and sound. The teams were then scored on meeting the basic specifications that were given to them at the beginning of the workshop along with safety and any other unique features they developed.
For the past four years, the TT Electronics-IMS team in Perry, Ohio has supported The Adopt-A-Family Association.

TT Electronics also contributed three children’s bikes to the large amount of gift donations.

For the last three years, the TT Electronics-IMS team in Perry, Ohio has held a "Stuff the Bus" drive to raise money and school supplies for the children in our local community. Thanks to the generosity of the team members in Perry, over 2,000 children in the local community will be able to start their school year off right this fall.
The drive was held over the course of three weeks and our team worked hard to fill a miniature school bus to the top with school supplies, like pencils, crayons, and notebooks. The supplies were distributed to the children and their families at the Lake County "Back to School Bash" this past weekend at the local high school. The team in Perry look forward to taking part in this drive again next year.
