Skyping Brazilian Team 5800!

A few weeks ago, a member of FRC Team 5800, from Brazil, contacted our team and asked to skype! The 2018 season will be their first season participating in the New York City Regional, and they wanted to know more info about it!We were super excited for the opportunity and arranged a meeting!

When we skyped with them, we answered their questions about the regional, being on an all-girls team, and the weather in New York in April! We also agreed to loan them some batteries during the competition because they can’t ship them over!

We had a lot of fun and we can’t wait to see them during competition!

 

Double X Shop Tour!

A few weeks ago, FRC team 4856 reached out to us and asked to tour our shop and learn how to better organize and structure their team! We thought it would be so cool to help out another New York all-girls FRC team, so we arranged a time for them to tour!

At the meeting, we showed them our shop and all our resources. We also let them observe our meeting! If they had any questions, they were able to ask our team leadership! We also showed them how we use Asana and how we contact sponsors!
