Travis High School NightTags: motivate and outreach
Task: Present about SEM and the Iron Reign Robotics program
Today, we went to the Travis H.S. Night to talk to prospective freshmen about our robotics team. The format of the night was this: four twenty-five minute periods, with twenty minutes about SEM and five minutes about robotics. To fit this time schedule, we condensed our usual recruitment presentation down to five minutes while also demoing our former Worlds robot, Kraken. We mainly talked about the main points of FTC: being well rounded, the emphasis on writing, business, and the like. Then, we answered questions from the audience for the rest of the time. Overall, we presented to about 120 parents and students.
We plan to hold more presentations and outreach events in the future. We've already stepped our recruitment game up, so events like these are crucial.
