Trace provides support and mentoring for the Elmbrook School District’s FIRST Robotics team. BEAST Robotics is a unique varsity sport of the mind where high school age participants collaborate with real world professionals to concept, design and build a functional robot to complete a defined activity. Each year the completed robots compete to see which teams design works the best. The entire process exposes young people to real world cross function and interdisciplinary problem solving and well as teaching how to collaborate and compete with a common goal in mind.
Trace-A-Matic’s business leaders believe in servitude and giving back to their community. As God’s word tells us in
1 Peter 4:10
“Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God’s grace in its various forms.”
Trace’s culture embodies this principle. Each employee is encouraged to give back to the community through their church or charity of choice. For those employees who have taken the extra initiative to serve a Not-For-Profit organization as a leader or help to organize volunteering activities within Trace, Trace willingly steps in to help monetarily. Here are just a few of the charities Trace has teamed up together to support:
- Milwaukee Rescue Mission
- Cystic Fibrosis Foundation
- Juvenile Diabetes Foundations
- American Lung Association
