On Tuesday and Wednesday this week Central McGowan in St. Cloud hosted a manufacturing summit. Several area manufacturing companies, and civic organizations, as well as St. Cloud Technical College and St. Cloud State University were there. The Gearheads had a booth too.

On Tuesday we showed our robot off to local business people. We love telling people about FIRST Robotics and the skills that it gives students a chance to develop. Some of the employees of those businesses brough their families and we had the chance to show their students the robot.

On Wednesday, students came from area high schools and we had the change to talk to them about FIRST Robotics and our team. Some of them where on teams at their schools, but many were not. The students in district 742, were given our brochure to introduce them to the team.

We also had our new in-progress robot there to let people try their hand at driving. We have only worked on it a few days, but it’s coming along nicely.
