So Benedict's and my church has an FLL team and we did a demo for them. A few people weren't on the FLL team, they just came because they were interested. There were about ten people. We explained the basic set up of FTC, then the basic set up of Relic Recovery. Then they all drove the robot. They had a ton of fun stacking all the blocks and giving them to their friends. We also tested the strength of the chassis by giving a short ride to one of the people. Both robot and human survived. Everyone seemed interested and asked good questions, so that was great. Here's hoping we get a few new members next year.
The restaurant Chipotle has a fundraiser where you give out flyers, and 50% of the order of anyone who comes in with a flyer or says they're there for the fundraiser goes to your organization. We did this last year, and it was a huge success, so we did it again this year. It was a ton of fun! I'll post the pictures when I get access to them. Quite a few people drove the robot. We made around $280, ate yummy food, and got to see small children freaking out over the fact that they got to drive a robot. All in all, a success.
We are the Droids, and we'll be keeping you updated on our progress.
