We were at the Hopkinton fair this year in the exabit hall! We were there Friday-Monday for most of the day. We had an interactive display where we had people driving our past robots around so they got to see them in action for themselves. We handed out business cards for people to get in contact with us and/or learn more about team and FIRST. There was a huge crowd of people and we had everyone who wanted to drive, either one or both, of our robots; or they just watched and we got to tell a lot of people about FIRST, and our team. We gained a huge amount of new members and was our most successful out reach. The 4-hers were impressed with our interactive exabits and plan on doing more of them in the future, going as far as making plans to restructure the 4-h exabit hall at the Hopkinton fair to make it easier to do interactive exabits.
We attended the Old Home Day celebration introducing many people to our robotics team in our brightly colored tent. We had both of our robots from the past two years there and we were switching them out so that the kids got to see both of them at work. Kids who stopped by got to drive the robot and work with the other person to move the blocks around and shoot the rings into the goal.
These are some old pictures of an outreach we did in collaboration with the boy scouts in the early summer of 2020.
