Back to School Night
Due to the fact that many team members graduated at the end of the 2015 school year, recruiting new members has been a top priority for us. At the beginning of every school year our school holds Back to School Night, which is an important event for the team in terms of recruitment and gaining support. We bring our robots from previous seasons, which catches the eye of many parents and students and prompts questions and interest in the team. Additionally, we use the night as a chance to fundraise by selling team merchandise. Through this event, we get our name out there to new students and people who may not have known about our school’s robotics team, as well as garner support for FIRST and STEM education.
