Intrepid Space and Science Festival – July 14th, 2015
We hosted a booth this summer at the Intrepid Space and Science Festival! For the past couple of years, we have been able to come to this festival and talk to children and adults interested in STEAM. We had an absolutely amazing time! Everyone we spoke to was extremely passionate about STEAM, much like we are, and we had the privilege of sharing our amazing experiences in FTC with them. We demonstrated last season’s Cascade Effect robot and had kids drive it and complete a challenge we designed for them (we had prizes too)! The best part of the festival was when we were able to show students and adults that applying their passion for STEAM into a FIRST competition (whether as a team member, a mentor, coach, or volunteer), is a fantastic way of developing engineering skills while simultaneously developing a team/community mentality. We can’t wait for next year’s Intrepid Space and Science Festival!
