From August 11-16, 2016, our team ran a tent at the annual Rotary Fair held in Hillsborough, NJ. At this event, we introduced the fair's attendees to FRC Team 75. With our 2011 robot hanging tubes, onlookers were mesmerized by the robots abilities, and were interested to learn the specifics of the mechanism. Kids were also eager to interact with the robot, getting tubes dropped on their heads as a little game. We used that demo robot to explain the purpose of FIRST and expand Team 75's mission of promoting STEM within our community. Many of our alumni and incoming freshman members showed up to talk to our drive team and ask questions. After 6 nights of demo work, we packed up until our next event, with plenty of new faces informed about STEM.
