It was wonderful to see so many new faces today at our meeting.We had quite the welcoming committee at our door! Kacey (our 2009 robot) was wearing a welcome sign all day!
We introduced all the newcomers to FIRST, and explained what we do as a team throughout the year.
If you are interested in joining our team, you’ll need to pick up a package of permission forms, and indicate which sub-teams you are interested in.
This year we are dividing up into slightly smaller groups to focus on marketing, communication, programming, construction, and mentoring our friendly neighbourhood FLL teams and preparing for our tournament. Think about what areas are of interest to you!
We look forward to adding to our numbers tomorrow. We will demonstrate our robot for the grade 9 club carousel, and hopefully raise some interest and enthusiasm for our team.
Along with new students, we welcome back our mentors from Queen’s University as they start their classes this week. We’ll welcome lots more people this Thursday in room 107 until 4:30pm.
