Field days are always an amazing opportunity to reach out to children in our elementary and middle schools. The students were able to learn about our team, the summer camps we run, and opportunities in FIRST, such as FLL. We did a robot demonstration and explained our program to about 300-350 elementary schoolers K-5 and many were interested. We went with over 100 summer camp flyers, and we were out halfway through the day. The kids’ faces lit up when they saw the robot work for the first time, and so many of them were excited to try and come to our summer camps. Several teachers also were interested in FLL, and they took flyers to see if they could start a team.

The Discovery presentation was a great outreach event for 8th graders interested in joining FTC, and eventually, FRC. Like the elementary schoolers, they were also incredibly impressed by seeing the robot work. Some students came up to us afterwards and asked for more information. This impacted the entire 8th grade class, about 300-350 people in total.
