Speaking of.. Something I've thought about every time Dean says "Bring more schools to FIRST".. In just the U.S., what would happen if every single high school in the country had a FIRST team??? It would be great exposure because the public just couldn't escape us and a lot of peopl would learn from a good set of expereinces, but on the other hand, would there be enough sponsors to fund us???
As a team with limited to no support from our school's administration financially or otherwise, would sponsors alone keep us or other teams like us afloat??? Or would we see more teams join FIRST for a year or two and then disappear from the robotics radar completely?
