It was great fun meeting new members today. While they have a couple of more meetings to decide if FTC is something they’d like to commit to for the full season, all three will be joining us at the FTC Season Kick-off on September 11 in Orlando. The students, who hail from three different schools – one homeschooled, one a junior in Land O’ Lakes High School’s IB program and one a junior at Sunlake High School – have never participated in FIRST or explored robotics before. But all bring valuable skills and talents to TDT – from mass communications interests, to interests in the arts, math, science and technology – as well as warmth and enthusiasm. We hope they’ll all stay with us!
We enjoyed catching up on summer news and happenings, got all our gear organized for the new season – a beautiful thing to see – and even got a Skype visit from a former member, who’s now at the University of Florida.
Next stop, Orlando on September 11! Stay tuned!
