On Friday, August 22nd, the Iron Panthers hosted an informational meeting for prospective members and freshmen. Over 20 new students attended in order to learn more about the Burlingame High School Robotics Team. Our current leads gave a short presentation about the three different areas of our team (Engineering, Programming, and Business) and also fielded questions from interested students. We were very pleased with the high turnout at the meeting and were excited to meet our new peers!
One of our primary goals is to spread STEM education and FIRST ideals to the community, and we hope that by bringing in new team members, we can expose more students to aspects of STEM that they otherwise might not learn about elsewhere. As we move forward this season, we aspire to further our efforts in spreading STEM education and FIRST ideals, while expanding our team.
