FIRST Fare has become one of the highlights on the pre-season calendar for Oregon and South West Washington FRC teams. FIRST Fare is a collaboration of seminars, workshops and practical knowledge. For years FIRST Fare has provided rookie FRC teams with valuable insight and knowledge that lead teams to success and to continue growing. FIRST Fare is also becoming a great way for veteran teams to improve, learn from and gain friendships with other teams. Gladstone Robotics is working very hard to incorporate more businesses that hire FIRST students, and more universities, companies and people that support STEM education, FIRST and most importantly FRC Teams and students. Classes, workshops and activities will be scheduled throughout the day, and an open Technology Pavilion will keep students, mentors, parents and volunteers both new and experienced interested through the day. The Technology Pavilion will be open to the general public, but seminars and workshops will be limited to FRC participants.
