Team member - Gr 12
In June we had the opportunity to participate in the Delta Parade. At the event various companies and non-profit groups in our community showed up to showcase their services. Participation at the parade and holding our demo booth on the field gave us the chance to spread the word about FIRST Programs and inspire youth to explore the world of STEM through robotics. Half of our team walked in the parade with our robot on a float, handing out flyers, while the rest of us combined forces with teams 18841 KSS One and 16031 Parabellum to set up a stationary info booth. At this booth, our team not only showcased our robot and answered people's questions about FIRST Tech Challenge, but we also engaged the younger population at a FIRST LEGO League station we set up. We helped kids who came through our booth program LEGO robots and attempt challenges on a playing field. We had an amazing turnout. It was so much fun to engage with people interested in robotics, and we can't wait for the opportunity to do it again!
