Tonight Up Next was elated to invite our amazing sponsors to an Open House event to show them our progress during build season. We provided dinner, spoke to them about FIRST, and told them how much we appreciate their support for our team. Afterwards we demonstrated all of the main components of our robot. Our sponsors seemed to be very impressed with our progress. We were also honored to have State Representative T.J. Berry see our robot perform and tell him of all the great values FIRST has brought out of us.
Being a Christian team, we were very excited to have K-LOVE, from the radio station 97.3, here with us this evening. Many of our students were interviewed about what their roles are on the team, how FIRST has affected their lives and if they were interested in pursing a career associated with Science, Technology, Engineering, or Math.
Up Next would like to thank each of our sponsors for their generous support of our team! We wouldn’t be able to be involved in this amazing program without you!
