Armstrong outreach

We had a great outreach session today at Armstrong Elementary. The kids were engaged and asked many questions as well as having fun with the squarebots. The teachers at Armstrong were also very pleased, asking about Jr FLL and how they could get some more robotics into their elementary school programs.

All-in-all a great showing of HHS and our team. Thanks to all who helped us organize and make this a success!
