Community Outreach

Halloween Kids's Fest on October 31st, 2013. The GEARS robotic family volunteered to help the local FEA chapter in presenting Halloween Kidsfest for the children of Gilmer County.  This gives the students within the community a safe, indoor location to play games and trick or treat. The robotics students performed Halloween science experiments for the students and sent them how with goodies.
