Community FIRST Day
The Ward Melville Iron Patriots participated in Community FIRST Day 2018, in an effort to better our community. Community FIRST Day is an international effort among FIRST Robotics teams to enrich STEM involvement in their respective communities. Every November 28th, over 180 teams worldwide participate in this event.
This year, the Iron Patriots held a bake sale to raise money for the Three Village STEM Foundation, which administrates many of the district’s STEM organizations, including SciO and the Science Bowl Club. Members donated homemade and store-bought treats to sell, and helped work the sale stand. We raised nearly $200, which will go towards enriching STEM education throughout the district. We’re so proud of everyone who helped out, and thankful for all the donations of baked goods!
