What is it like to watch a robotics tournament?
Read a blogger’s response to his first FIRST robotics event. It is written by Paul Smith, an enthusiastic new Fan of our “sport.”
Click here: Top 10 Differences Between Sports and Robotics to read the whole post. I’ve summarized his Top 10 Differences below:
- #10 The fans
- #9 The role of girls
- #8 Learning skills they’ll actually use later in life
- #7 “Coopertition”
- #6 Language on the field
- #5 Treatment from coaches
- #4 Brain injuries
- #3 Playing time
- #2 Fighting
- #1 Humility
(I don’t mean to “brag,” but…)
The “testimonial” of this FIRST-fan just goes to show, kids, that random people do notice it when you act on the basis of “Gracious Professionalism.” Read the whole article and you’ll agree that “we” have rocked this guy’s world.
P.S. My intention for these “off season” posts is to strengthen ties between the team and our sponsors. So share any post you think will be appreciated by your friends/fans (and invite them to “follow” our blog). Maybe next year, they’ll come watch us compete – or even become Sponsors! :)
