As we move to more online programming, one of the our first offerings this summer is a three day “Intro to CAD” class offered by team member, Maalav. With several students set to graduate this year, we want to make sure everyone is cross trained on as many team roles and skillsets as possible, especially our new team members.
Our introductory Computer Aided Design class runs July 10-12, 11am to noon each day. Continue reading →
Team Duct Tape came out of the gate in decidedly better shape this season than they did last season, finishing in solid third place against some stiff ROBOT League competition, and learning a lot in the process! There was lots of bock shoveling, flag raising and robot hanging going on at Hillsborough High School on Saturday, some dancing and a little silliness, too. In short – FTC season has started!
Got a little time before our next meet, when we head south on November 23 for an out-of-league road trip to Ft. Myers, to compete in the SW Florida Robotics League WolfDen Meet hosted by South Fort Myers High School. We’re looking forward to visiting with our South Florida friends!
We’ll be tweaking and tinkering until then, and maybe get a little more precision on that block delivery system!
Many thanks to all the volunteers who make the Hillsborough meet so much fun!
