TechFire shot 2013 game pieces into the stands at the York Revolution baseball game, our local minor league team. It was Engineer’s night, so other cool student projects were there too, like the local Formula SAE team. Everyone had a great time, and the people in the stands were super excited to catch the discs.
The York Revolution staff was nice enough to play one of our videos and let me announce our sponsors… If you look closely, you can see our logo up on the Jumbotron.
Pretty awesome marketing campaign. I don’t remember, was the USFIRST website listed on the discs?
Baseball and robots, nothing better!
It wasn’t, but each disc had a label stuck to the bottom with our disc sponsor (Primerica Financial Services, Skip Billet, representative) and our team website (which has a form on the homepage about how to get involved in FIRST in the York/Lancaster areas), and we were handing out FIRST brochures and other team fliers at our table at the stadium entrance.
