TEAM DUCT TAPE

An Exceptional FIRST Tech Challenge Robotics Team

TDT 7.0 is Underway!

groupIt’s a new year, a new challenge (Cascade Effect!) and we’ve got a new team member, Michael, making us 11 strong this year.

Michael made our awesome Guess the Game prize for Kick-Off, a duct tape Captain America shield that a team member on FTC Team Smoke & Mirrors won with their pretty good game guess!

 
 

 
 

Design session

Considering design ideas at The Hive

Since we really didn’t stop meeting all summer long, it wasn’t too hard to get back into the swing of things for our 7th season. We started off our first “official” meeting at the Hive, at the John F. Germany Library, where we’ve been pretty active all summer.

TDT at September IEEE-RAS meeting

Recent outreach efforts include helping out at the Hive open houses, FIRST training days, and, last week, providing demos and information about FIRST to the Tampa chapter of IEEE-RAS

We’ve got a pretty tight competition schedule here in Florida, with the League system and the South Super Regional  between the State Championship and the FIRST Championship.  So once meets start we expect the season to fly!

You can keep up with our journey here and on Facebook & Twitter, and as always, we welcome in-kind, mentoring and financial support to keep our community based team running strong and learning!
