Commitment towards growing future Robostangs…
The Robostangs are extremely passionate about our pipeline programs. Every year, we try to increase our member participation, as we want to maximize exposure to STEM in Northville. This year, we identified that the biggest problem is that the word of our programs might not be reaching parents. We decided to attend every elementary school’s open house, personally handing out flyers to parents so that everyone was aware of FIRST Robotics programs at their school.
On August 15, Robostangs attended six elementary school open houses to hand out flyers and explain our program to parents and students. This helped us get more attendance, as our FLL Jr. and FLL programs doubled in size. Ultimately, going to all of these open houses allowed us to more effectively spread the message of FIRST and inspire students to get involved in robotics programs.
