Annually, team 190 does over 50 demos to groups around central Massachusetts. Demos are public events, typically held at schools, libraries, community centers, STEM nights, or festivals. Typically, demos are 30-60 minutes long, where team members discuss and present information about the team, drive the robot, and answer questions from the audience about our robot, the team, and the mission of FIRST. Towards the end of our demos we give young (and sometimes older) audience members the opportunity to drive the robot with the help of team members.

For larger events or school functions, the team is able to run multiple demos back-to-back. For information on where you could host a demo, see our demo venue information.

If you have questions, or are interested in scheduling a demo, contact Francis O’Rourke, Assistant Director of the WPI Robotics Resource Center at
