If you’re like us, you have a lot of unused game pieces from years prior taking up space somewhere in the back of your shop. If you bought a lot of fuel this year, it will soon join the collection, and the space it consumes adds up quickly if you have more than just a few.
We decided to use our fuel as giveaways - we wrote our team info and meeting schedule on each fuel, and as part of a demo where we shoot the fuel, we then give the fuel to interested incoming freshmen in exchange for their contact information. While it’s too early to know the final results of this, so far the response has been positive. Students who take fuel have something tangible to remember us by and they won’t forget when the meetings are. And as an additional upside, we won’t use as much space storing our fuel for the next ten years
YMMV, but if you do any demos with your Steamworks robot this fall, you might find it helpful.
