___________ADVERTISING OUR STEM EVENT________________
The Moonstormers organized a live STEM education event to share what they have learned about the moon and the field of robotics. The Robot Fair was held on July 20 to celebrate the anniversary of the Apollo moon landing. The Moonstormers made fliers like the one shown here, and five 6 foot-long banners that they hung wherever the local cities would let them. They also flooded their Facebook circles of influence with information about the event over 2 days to get the word out.
