Last Tuesday was the first day of orientation for incoming freshman at Assabet, and we were on hand to help out! For the morning, our students had a room where the freshmen circulated in and out of and we gave about a 5 minute presentation about our team and handed out fliers for the upcoming mixer on the 18th. Later that afternoon we got to do a full demonstration in the auditorium, and even had some of the freshmen come up and take a turn shooting the robot, which earned them t-shirts! Lo and behold, some of them wore the t-shirts to school the next day! Hope this bodes well for recruiting – I guess we’ll see!

I’ll let the photos tell the rest of the story. 🙂

We’re hoping to see many of these freshmen at our mixer on September 18 and hoping they’ll join us for the 2012-2013 build season!
