As mentioned in last weeks blog, the Gearheads were a part of the Benton County Fair, July 30-Aug. 4th. 3 of the 4 FIRST Robotics programs were represented at the Fair. We had our robot, Jupiter there demo’ing and sometimes letting visitors drive.

We also had two of our mentors who did double duty answering questions in the FLL team area. David and Lori Dale will be starting an FLL team in the fall, so it was a good chance for them to familiarize themselves with the robots and how they work, also to promote the program.

In addition, FIRST Tech Challenge (FTC) teams from Becker, Rogers and Elk River were there to represent FTC, and demo their robots. We had fun watching their bots in action.

We talked to many people who came by about FIRST Robotics, gave out a lot of buttons and brochures, and enjoyed our first time at the Benton County Fair. We hope to be back again next year!
