India Student Exchange Program

Team 1676 also initiated a student exchange program with The Choice School in Cochin, India to introduce them to FIRST. The students from India stayed with team members and their families for two and a half weeks to learn about FIRST and to experience learning at a high school in our country. They attended classes with Pi-oneers, visited New York City, and experienced the day-to-day life of a Pi-oneer during Build Season. The students learned skills side-by-side with team members, including robot and non-robot Divisions. Several outreach projects are planned in partnership with them after they return. The Pi-oneers plan to visit their new friends in India to help them start their own team. "
