This is the second year that our team has participated in the Hawaii McDonald’s fundraiser. Like last year, every Egg McMuffin sandwich sold during Robotics week, March 17-23, one dollar will be given to Hawaii FIRST Robotics teams. On March 22, our team headed over to the Mililani Mauka McDonalds to showcase our FRC and FTC robots. The fundraiser brought in a record $40,666, which will be distributed among the 29 Hawaii FRC teams.
We had team members wave signs by the drive-through to tell people to buy Egg McMuffins and telling them about our program. Others were in the restaurant with the FTC and FRC robot which people could drive around. Many children enjoyed driving around the robot and were amazed to see the things that we, as students, were able to achieve. This event was a lot of fun; we got to talk to people to tell them about the robotics programs that Mililani offers and showcase what we have been working so hard on.
