MT OLIVE RECREATION:
The Mount Olive Carnival has always been a MORT event tradition. Located i the park right next to our high school, we ensure ourselves a spot annually. We receive stage time to give a demonstration of our robots (MORT and Beta) and brief rundown of our team. Afterwards, we invited both the children and parents to come up on the stage for a closer look and to ask any questions they might have. Many of the parents expressed their interest in out team and explained their excitement about their children getting involved with FIRST. MORT always enjoys being able to make a positive impact on students and members of our community, exciting them about the opportunities offered to them in the field of STEAM! Additionally, we've started participating in the Mount Olive Fairies and Pirates Festival. Similar to the Carnival, we showcase our robot and invite children to engage with the game elements and ask questions. We look forward to doing these events again next year!
Every year, members of MORT volunteer at the Mount Olive District Science Fairs. The science fairs, hosted by each of the elementary schools in Mount olive, manifest STEAM education and encourage students to present their experiments. MORT participates by volunteering to judge the children’s experiments. Moreover, they invigorate STEAM by demonstrating the robot and its capabilities.
