Vista View Outreach Event
May 20, 2016
On Friday, the executive board attended Vista View Middle School, located in fountain Valley, The group of team members presented twice, talking to the 6th graders and then again to the 7th and 8th graders during their lunches. The Hawkbots introduced the middle schoolers to this year’s robot, Esa Playa, demonstrated how it worked, discussed the functions, purposes, and composition of the bot, and showed them what it did. After a fun and interactive game of catch between the Vista View falcons and the Team 4619 bot and Hawkbots, many questions were asked, proving the interest of the middle schoolers in S.T.E.A.M. fields and Robotics. A great atmosphere of energy, knowledge, enthusiasm, and amusement was felt in the auditorium of the Falcons, allowing the Robotics team of Ocean View High School to leave the Vista view campus having accomplished the goal of enlightening them about the incredible world of S.T.E.A.M. and F.I.R.S.T. robotics.
Our goal is to illuminate our community about the great world of S.T.E.A.M. and we are accomplishing this school with every event we host.
Special thanks to Vista View Middle School!
Mesa View Middle School Outreach Event
June 1, 2016
The last outreach event of the year for the Hawkbots was at Mesa View Middle School, located in Huntington Beach. Team 4619 presented to a class of 8th graders and afterwards , to 7th and 8th graders during their lunch. The executive board talked to the kids about the Ocean View team and about robotics in general. From explaining how a new F.R.C. game is revealed every year, to showing them the anatomy of Esa Playa, this outreach event proved to be a great one. Since the team had the classroom of a Robotics teacher as a platform, a recap video of the two regionals 4619 attended was shown, causing the Mesa View Eagles to become even more interested in STEAM concepts and F.R.C. Robotics. Many questions were asked and both of the crowds of middle school students very exceedingly excited when the Hawkbots informed them that the high schools they would be attending in the near future all have Robotics teams as well. Laughter, questions, comments, jokes, answers, facts, business cards, and even 4619 pins were all present in Ocean View High School’s last School Outreach Event of the year, however, the most important thing to the OV Hawkbots is that younger generations presented a massive interest in Robotics, S.T.E.A.M., and a bright future.
A big shout out to Mesa View Middle School, home of the Eagles!!
