Fall Festival

Our school helps to tie together our diverse community members through various activities including the Fall Festival. For six years, we set up VEX robot obstacles at the Fall Festival to allow young kids spark up their interest in robotics as well as FIRST. This community event is one of the biggest activities of our year, as we are educating and informing our community about FIRST and our team. This year we participated in Trunk or Treat, which is a Halloween inspired event designed to expose young kids to the Montgomery High School clubs and teams in an interactive way. There were multiple sub-events such as a trunk decorating competition between the teams and clubs. The Robotics Team specifically re-purposed the 2015 robot to be our version of a trunk, and when kids pressed a button, the robot, which was made to look like a ghost, would come down with a bucket of candy for the kids to take. Our team trunk was seen as the most innovative, so we won a $10 gift card.
