Our team members at the World Championship (left) and the FRC Competition Area (right)
During the season, our teammate Jackie was nominated as a Dean’s List Finalist so we decided to send some members with her to visit Worlds. While we were there, we signed up as student ambassadors or SAs. Our job as SAs was to give tours to representatives from sponsors and other large companies that are interested in FIRST, such as Boeing or LEGO. During these tours we would walk through each level of robotics from FLL to FRC, showing the representatives matches and introducing them to teams. We also directed them to specific teams that they were sponsoring, which let them to see what they were helping create. It was tons of fun exploring and seeing the VIP’s reactions to different areas as they learned about FIRST and some even considered volunteering in the future.
