The Robockets love to give team presentations to explain the FIRST organization and our Team 4761. In the past, we have presented to the Reading School Committee and the Reading Selectmen (10 February 2015). We presented to Rethink Robotics, OpenView Venture Capital Partners, Endeavor Robotics, Amazon Robotics and Rethink Robotics.
Reading Friends and Family Day
Every June, The Robockets attend Reading Friends and Family Day, where they showcase and demo their past years’ robots for the town of Reading. Throughout the day, the team talks to the town about what FIRST is about and talks about the opportunities FIRST Robotics presents for students at the high school.
Reading Street Faire
Every September, the Robockets attend the Reading Street Faire. At the Reading Street Faire, the Team 4761 promotes the Robockets brand and showcases the team and previous years’ robots to the town. At the event, The Robockets create and interactive game with the past years’ robots, such as shooting a Frisbee with Penelope into a goal. The Street Faire is an extremely fun community event for the team to attend.
The Festival of Trees
Every December, Team 4761 participates in the Festival of Trees. The Festival of Trees is a huge fundraising event for the Reading Education Foundation (one of the team’s major sponsors). The Robockets are extremely grateful for the support provided to the team by the Reading Education Foundation. To show our thanks, every year, the team donates their time and a decorated Christmas Tree to be raffled off in this fundraising event.
