Today, Palisades High School students had the opportunity to watch the film Slingshot, an inspiring film about Dean Camen, founder of FIRST, and his innovative ways. Cybersonics hosted the event, and the entire team, as well as many technology, science and art students students attended the showing. The film helped connect Team 103 with their roots in industry and better informed the team of FIRST’s beginnings and inspiration. Cybersonics relies on the support it gets from FIRST and the community.
This showing was a wonderful way to connect Cybersonics with the local community, and connect Palisades High School’s students with the team. This showed students what FIRST was and its role in technology. The movie also provided encouraging words for the students and spread the Dean’s message to work hard and never give up.
