Sub-Team Spotlight: Marketing
This week’s focus is on the marketing sub-team. Mentor, Nancy Mancuso, and sub-team leader Leigha Bopp head the marketing sub-team. The marketing team is responsible for writing the Chairman’s essays and presentations. Marketing also writes the Woodie Flowers essay, which nominates a mentor for their outstanding help and support of a team. Marketing also does things like planning and executing stem lessons in or community, specifically the GEMS lessons. These are lessons that help to inspire young girls to get involved in science, math and engineering. The sub-team researches projects, plans activities, and then helps teach them to elementary aged girls in our community. In addition to this the marketing sub-team helps set up and run countless events, like Dreams From Drake, chalk the walks, and light up the village, all of which help us to give back to our supportive community.
Fun Fact of the week

Quote of the week
“I’m not afraid of storms, for I’m learning to sail my ship.”Louisa May Alcott
The second week is in full swing at Ranger Robotics, plans are being finalized, ideas are being put into reality, and new members are buzzing with excitement about the competitions in the upcoming months. Although it is only the second week here, you can already feel the excitement from the new kids for the next few weeks of build season, and after that competition season. Time seems to go by faster when you are in the crazy environment that is Spencerport High School after hours. Students are working tirelessly to build working parts for our robot, write and edit the Chairman’s essay, and design code for the bot. The chaos of Team 3015 has doubled in the last week and we can only see it getting crazier in the coming weeks, but who can blame us? That is the price you pay when you compete in FIRST.
