In 2018, Boneyard Robotics reached out to FIRST North Carolina to request the ability to operate quiet rooms at all NC FRC competitions in 2019. The idea had come from Boneyard’s dedication to serve a neurodiverse population and help them better enjoy all that FIRST has to offer.
We worked with a Certified Advanced Autism Speialist to develop the room. It features low lighting, minimal sensory gadgets, and as you would expect, quiet. In keeping with this year’s FRC theme, we call it the “Quiet Space.”
If you utilized or experienced the Quiet Space at any of the 2019 NC FRC competitions, please fill out this brief survey to help us improve the Quiet Space.
