Wednesday, October 11th was elementary demonstration day for the Fort Smith Robotics team. The leadership team, build team, and some of the spirit team attended. The point of elementary demonstration day is to show elementary gate students and sixth graders (who will be going into junior high next year) what happens in robotics. The team went to four different schools; Fairview Elementary, Tilles Elementary, Spradling Elementary, and Woods elementary. In all of the schools, the first thing that happened was a live performance of a snippet from our music video. The children also got to watch the music video. After that, the captains of various teams shared what they did and how the elementary students could plug into robotics. Next, the children asked questions while the teachers picked two students, one male and one female. After all of the questions were answered, the male and female students competed head-to-head in a simulation of the actual robotics competition. This happened one more time. Then, the teachers picked three more students to drive spheros in a race where they had to transport cups from the starting line to the teachers. The cups had hypothetical water in them and the teachers were in a burning building and needed that water to put out the fire. Finally, the GATE teachers would answer questions about robotics and the event (for that school at least) would be over. This day was fundamental for the elementary students which were interested in robotics because they got to see what robotics was and got early exposure to it.
