On Saturday, August 18, from 1pm to 3pm, FIRST Tech Challenge Team Duct Tape will be hosting a Library Robotics Teams Open House at Regency Park Branch Library , in New Port Richey, FL. FIRST LEGO League Jr. Team LEGO Pros, which also meets at Regency Park Library, will also be on hand showcasing what they do.
FIRST LEGO League Jr. LEGO Pros has room for two to three students ages 6-9. Team Duct Tape is a middle and high school level team, that currently has opening for 5-6 students.
Hopefully you’ve been keeping up with the FIRST Tech Challenge blog in the last few weeks, and if you have, you might have seen some allusions to game hints there, like on July 1 for instance. Check out some of the posts after that, too, to see if anything looks promising. Even you don’t see any game hints, you’ll get lots of good information for you new season.
Either way, you’ve got from now until September 9 to enter your best guess for the 2016-17 FIRST Tech Challenge game. The team that comes closest to the actual game wins a handmade duct tape gift! (Last year’s winner took home an awesome RD D2 made out of duct tape.)
Good luck, and Go Teams!
Team Duct Tape has earned their place in this years State Championship, within our R.O.B.O.T. league we won three awards: the Judges award for having the best video in the state of Florida, the finalist alliance award (along with Stealth tigers), and the Inspire award, which we are very grateful for. Out of the entire state of Florida, we won the honor of having the highest score for our video. An impressive 86 out of 100 was our score. A lot of sweat and tears went into our video, and we are very proud of how it turned out. Yet another proud achievement of ours is the fact that since Team Duct Tape was formed we have gone to state every year.
State Championship will be held at St. Leo University, on February 13th. Team Duct Tape is excited about participating, and we are confident in our robot and abilities. We are hopeful to make it to Super Regionals in Texas. Also, we would like to thank all of our sponsors and supporters of TDT. We could not have accomplished this without your support.
