Spreading The Word Abroad in Hsinchu, Taiwan


Two members of FIRST Team 846, Michael Lin and Akshat Agrawal, traveled to Hsinchu, Taiwan this spring break and spread the word of FIRST and our project throughout various schools and even got to talk to the mayor of the city! The mayor’s way of finishing the phrase? “Because Robots make life easier and more efficient” (written in his native Chinese).

Some more efforts of Michael and Akshat include:

  1. Spoke with a junior highschool principal and director of their program (an English teacher) about Because Robots and FIRST.
  2. Michael Lin spoke to a class of 43 in the high school he visited about FIRST and received good feedback.
  3. Spoke with the entire high school (~700 students) about FIRST, which includes speaking with multiple directors and the principal of the school.

Both Michael and Akshat are still in Taiwan, so check back soon for more updates of their trip!
