Before the build season, our students, escorted by mentors of FIRST Team Paragon 571 go out in to the community and visit local businesses. When we meet them, we introduce ourselves and tell them a little bit about the team and FIRST Robotics. After the meeting, we leave behind a folder of information, as well as a sponsorship form, and tell them to check out our website for more information.We prepare for these visits at the beginning of the year with practice interviews between mentors and students. This is just another way that we as a team can learn life skills that we will take with us going forward in our lives.
