The Eldon Gearheads are known to do various community acts around our town and for our town. Such as...
1. Two years ago, the Eldon Gearheads noticed the issue of too much trash going into landfills. We came up with a great solution. Our team's school has cartons of milk at lunch every day and they are being thrown away every day. That will eventually add up and will become a lot of trash just ending up in landfills. So we decided to do a little research and we found a way to use the milk cartons in a more productive way. We turned them into flower pots that were able to house a small plant.
2. We attended the annual 2017 Eldon Turkey Festival and set up a booth there. We provided an idea of how the robot works and we let the people who visited our booth drive the robot. The team spoke to different people around the community about the robot and the FIRST challenge.
3. We got together with Camdenton and listened to the Relic Recovery video. Afterwards, we did a Question and Answer with their senior students. After that, we visited the challenge board, synergized, and developed a strategy.
4. On Saturday, February 3, four of our fellow team members went to a programming seminar held by our allies, team #8461, Elementary My Dear Botson. The people who went learned how to program on Android Studios using Java Script.
