Outreach Opportunities for FL FIRST Teams

Learning about FRC-cThe following FIRST Outreach Opportunities have been out to team contacts.  If you’re interested in any of these, please follow instructions for registering:

  • Morikami Museum Robot Day, Delray BeachJuly 18 – We’re looking for 2 FRC and 2 FTC teams and 1 FLL team.  This exhibition explores Japan’s vast robot kingdom by way of a variety of vintage toys, figurines, and other robot forms, including a furry robotic seal, Paro, a therapy robot created to calm and comfort those in need.  morikami@pbcgov.org – Please register your interest in participating by June 22 in our online FIRST Outreach form.
  • BSA STEM Day at Cade Museum, Gainesville – August 15 – Looking for 1 FLL, 1 FTC, and 1 FRC team to spend time showing off their bots and projects to Boy Scouts. The Boy Scouts of America is looking to grow STEM in scouting and FIRST programs are of much interest. Scouts from all over North Florida will be visiting the Cade Museum to learn about different STEM concepts from area experts. The event has 2 sessions, morning and afternoon. If you are interested in sharing FIRST with other curious kids or have questions, please contact Florida FIRST Senior Mentor, Andy Milluzzi at amilluzzi@usfirst.org by June 20th.
  • Maker Faire Orlando, Orlando Science Center – Sept. 12 & 13 – Call for Jr. FLL, FLL, FTC & FRC teams to exhibit at the Orlando Maker Faire.  Please register at the Maker Faire Orlando website  and note that you are registering as part of the FIRST exhibit (there’s an option during registration for identifying the booth you’ll be with).  MFO registration deadline is June 8.  Please send a note to TWillingham@usfirst.org after you’ve registered, so we can put together the exhibit schedule for team shifts.  We’re aware this even conflicts with the FTC 2015-16 Kick-Off date on Sept. 12, but hope to have a mini-kick off at the event with any participating teams.

Please contact us if you have any questions or would like more information about any of these events, or have other events you’d like to which FIRST teams are invited.
