The Marketing subteam is finalizing 2020 Sponsors! Emma Lahtinen shows how our Sponsor support has grown, holding our first Team Shirt (2013-14) and wearing last year’s shirt.
Right now, Programming subteam is teaching its members Worcester Polytechnic Institute’s brand new command based framework. The command based framework is essentially tying individual actions to buttons on the controller. The newest version does not crash as much, so it is much more efficient. People are experimenting with cameras and point cloud intellisense cameras and are learning how to use Java and C++. Justice James, one of the team captains, is highly optimistic for this season and feels it will be a lot of “phun.”
The Marketing subteam team recently went on its first “Walkabout” of the season. The walk involves a group of students paired with Marketing Mentor Bill Davis (a.k.a. Uncle Bill) going to different businesses throughout Bainbridge Island and asking owners to become a Spartronics Sponsor. In the process, students explain what the team does, all the different Sponsorship levels, and what it takes to become a sponsor. Students report that the first walkabout went well. The new members of the marketing team are being trained how to use a variety of tech tools including WordPress (websites), MailChimp (email platform), and Photoshop (Graphics), we well as write our newsletter and keep our social media channels current. A new Spartronics brochure and Sponsor Benefits flyer was created and share with the Marketing subteam.
In the Electronics subteam, members are rotating week-to-week,
