About Degrees of Freedom

Si Se Puede Foundation (SSPF) was founded by Alberto L. Esparza in 1993, and became incorporated as a 501(c) 3, non-profit organization in 1998. In 2016, Si Se Puede Foundation founded Degrees of Freedom in Chandler, Arizona. Since then the all-girls robotics team has participated 6 regional competitions, attended Houston Championships 3 years in a row, and won Rookie All-Star Award, Engineering Inspiration Award, and Chairmans Award. More than just robots, Degrees of Freedom has made community service a top priority. Through workshops, summer camps, active mentorship, and much much more, Degrees of Freedom has been able to make a significant mark on the community.
