Today we brought Kasey I (our 2009 robot) to the Cataraqui Town Center.
Our mission was to raise awareness for the great programs available through FIRST, and to let our community know about our team heading to Championships later this month.
We met many youngsters who were keen to play with the robot.
We talked to many adults too. We told them about our team, our robots, and about FRC and FLL programs in the area.
Some adults were keen to drive too!
We sold tickets to our fish fry, and also tickets for a Camera Kingston gift basket. Tickets are $2 each or 3 for $5. You can buy them until the end of the fish fry on Saturday.
Over the course of the day we met a few people who knew a lot about FIRST. We met a mentor for FIRST team 771, and a few members of FIRST team 3710. We also created a few more K-Bots! Here are some of our new joiners for next season.
We look forward to teaching them more about our team when we return from St. Louis.
Thanks to everyone who came today to help out. We made an impression on many families, and we learned a lot about a different robot. We even fixed it a few times.
Our bottle drive is tomorrow at KCVI from 1 to 4 pm. Dress for the weather, we’ll be outside.
