This Saturday, April 2nd, four students from Team Komodo got the fantastic opportunity to demo our robot and explain FRC to the Parker Jr. FLL expo! Students Grayson Gerlich, Ryan Bacon, Aidan McDonald and Cameron Baker presented to over 75 young students from both Jr. FLL and FLL teams at American Academy in Parker. We also got the chance to participate in the awards ceremony. This included the hallowed tradition of the high five line. A big thank you to the event organizers, judges, and the fantastic Jr. FLL kids!
Throughout the three rotations during the morning event, a number of kids got the chance to take our robot Twitchy for a spin! We also answered numerous questions from kids and parents about our team and FIRST Robotics in general. It was amazing to see the kids engage with what they called "big robots" and hear how interested they are in bigger FIRST programs. All of these kids will be the next generation of engineers who run the world, and we were happy to have been a part of their learning experience.
Grayson Gerlich is a senior on the team and our webmaster. He also manages outreach content and team graphics.
