Community Service and Outreach
When it comes to outreach and community service, you have to think about your community and how you can teach them about robotics. Do the best you can to connect with your school, and even your local charity events. This will help you spread the word about robotics more, and help support the charity. Even try helping students at your school in FLL, to help promote FTC for next year! The more ideas your team comes up with, the better. Don’t be afraid to ask other robotic teams for ideas, try your high school team, and see if your team can help too! Remember, this is about having fun, supporting your robotics team, and showing gracious professionalism!
The Proton Blog Team (Kristina)
Our team has always had a keen touch of spirit. One key to our success with this is having a main color, which for us is purple. Once you've got that then it should be easy to decide how you want to be spirited. If many people on your team are dressed the same it is easy to recognize that your are all together and it may also bump up points for the motivate award. The motivate award is won by team spirit and understanding why it is good to do robotics. Our goal for spirit is to look like a blob of purple when our team is huddled together. One way we do this is by covering as much of our body in purple as we can. This may include wearing purple shoe laces, purple knee high socks, purple shorts, tutus, purple team shirts and undershirt with a purple hat or bandana. Spirit makes robotics a lot more fun for everyone.
