The month of March held many amazing opportunities for our team to fundraise for the upcoming trip to the World Championship in Houston. Some of the most memorable events were the St. Patrick's Day Market in Richmond, our Spring Break Camp at UBC, and our Board Game Day Fundraiser event.
We are grateful for the help and support of our community with our fundraising efforts. The great FTC team, KSS One, graciously allowed us to share the space with them at the St. Patrick's Day Market on March 18th. We got to talk to a ton of people about FIRST and collect donations to our gofundme campaign to cover the huge travel bill that comes with attending a robotics World Championship.
It is always a pleasure to see how excited elementary students get when we show them the awesome things they can program LEGO robots to do. We had a group of kids sign up to our Spring Break Camp, and we prepared for them a mock FLL program based on this season's game, SUPERPOWERED. By the end of the week, they were able to compete against each other for the most amount of points. It was a lot of fun for everyone involved. A big thank you to our sponsor, Daedalos Enrichment Programs for facilitating the organization of this event, and providing the necessary materials.
On April 1st, we got to put on our poker face! Our good friend, Mark W., organized a board games day by donation as a fundraiser for our team. We had a ton of people from the community show up for the event, where they got to play games for as long as they wished and enjoy delicious snacks and home-made baked goods. A huge thank you to Mark W. for organizing, to Mike and Kathleen for taking care of the venue, and also to Erin for her delicious baked goods. Playing games with friends was a good and welcomed break from all the busy work in preparation for the World Championship.
