This past summer, three of our team members, Nathan Doshi, Dominic Ganser, and McKenna Hillsdon-Smith, visited a 10th grade German History class to give them a debrief of what we do at Penn High School regarding robotics. We had planned for a much younger age group, so our presentation seemed a bit lackluster for them, but students still expressed interest for our program! We were able to access the team’s website and YouTube channel to give them a better look into what we do, including Mission to Engineer and more community events. In the class, there were 3 or 4 students that showed curiosity in what we were doing, and said if they had adequate funding, they would no doubt start a team. Overall, this presentation left the students with an urge to learn more about our school and robotics program!
