On Saturday May 5th, 2018. Penn High School hosted their annual Silver Mile run for education. This is one of the biggest events in the PHM corporation and Penn Robotics wasn’t going to miss out on such an important event. Once again, Penn High School entrusted Penn Robotics in building the finish line for the race.

After the race, the attendees were able to walk around Penn’s cafeteria for a showcase of all it’s programs. Team 135 took their 2018 robot and set it up for kids to drive. Penn’s FTC teams also took a part in that they had four of their bots ready for kids to drive and race around. People of all ages were intrigued by how we built our robot in just six weeks. Even PHM’s superintendent, Dr. Thacker, wanted to get in on driving the robot.

Silver Mile was also the perfect opportunity for us to promote our Summer Camp program that we host every summer. We had a booth set up to get as many people interested as we can. This community event was a great success, and we love getting to spread FIRST at this event every year.
