On August 29-31, Team 135 used the polyester projector to hype up the crowd at the sophomore-senior class meetings that students attended. From the beginning of the school year to the first class meeting, we had been repairing and improving the polyester projector, even fixing some technical problems with the breaker along the way during the sophomore class meeting. At the sophomore class meeting, we brought all our shirts and our deans began to grab and throw our supply of shirts we were planning on on using for the rest of the week, but we were still able to launch past robotics shirts for the junior and senior class meetings.

Overall, the enthusiasm was great at the assembly when we were using the launcher and we were able to get in front of most of the 10th-12th grade student body, about 2,500 students, as well as most staff at Penn High School including our principal, Mr. Galiher, most of the deans, and the teachers of the classes that brought their class down to the event. For future events, we plan to fix barrel one, put auto compressor shut off in the code, and paint the new tank.
