Around the time of our Arlington Qualifier back in January, we were invited by the Bot Side to a FIRST Expo at the MIT Museum in Kendall Square on February, 17th.  Unlike last year, which was scrimmage-based, this year the event was more interactive-based.  There were stations for each team available, at which museum-goers could come learn about the team’s history, progression, and robot.  In addition to bringing our Outreach posters, the rookies on the team spent several weeks building a robot to showcase at the expo.  It was the first time they got to show their hard work, and the overall impression was positive.  Our team also provided a scaled-down field set-up of the “Block Party” challenge, upon which teams could demo-drive.  The event was a great way to meet other teams, get our name known in the community, as well as giving our rookies a chance to display their work.
