Team Duct Tape members headed over to the Hillsborough High School Regional FIRST LEGO League Tournament Saturday morning, to cheer on FLL Teams Brick Buddies and TechnoForce , whom we’ve worked with and mentored. It was fun seeing all that raw FLL energy, and we had to head back to TDT HQ all too soon for our own meeting that afternoon.
But we’re happy to report that Technoforce earned 3rd place in Project Research (check out their great video) and are a 1st alternate for the FLL State Championship at Florida Institute of Technology on February 27.
And Brick Buddies won the Champion’s Award , the top FLL award for the team that most “passionately inspires and motivates others about the excitement of science and technology, solving problems, working as a team, and demonstrating respect and Gracious Professionalism.” Brick Buddies moves on to the Florida FLL State Championship at FIT, where we know they’ll do great! Congratulations, Brick Buddies!
We’re so proud of both these great teams, who so terrifically exemplify all that’s so wonderful about FIRST robotics! Go Teams!
Did we do all that? The way you say, it sounds exhausting! We are sending our best wishes to Team Duct Tape for a fantastic weekend in Daytona! If it will be streaming, we will be watching!
