School Rally and GATE Outreach

Today was packed. We started off with demos in two school rallies. By the second one, we had mastered our act and, firing soccer balls in the air, we had the crowd cheering. For our finale, we made our robot push the goal back to the station to help with clean-up.

An hour or so later we went to Graham Middle School and led a robotics seminar for GATE students. After providing an overview of a typical FRC season, reviewing parts, and explaining this year's challenge, we split into mock-brainstorm groups and demo-ed our robot with Q/A. From this we know we have a lot of recruits on our way!
