It was a rocky Rover Ruckus for us this season, and while our robot couldn’t quite rise to the occasion, we did! At the ROBOT League Championship this past weekend, we earned the Connect Award, and the 7th slot for Florida FIRST Tech Challenge State Championship participation in our League.
Super excited to be heading to the 2017 South Super Regional in Athens, GA March 23-25, after being part of the Winning Alliance with teams Super 7 and Mechromancers at the Florida FIRST Tech Challenge State Championship a few weeks ago!
We’re very grateful to the Tampa Bay Robotics Foundation for defraying event registration costs, but we still need to pay for travel, food and lodging. To help reduce costs for families, we’re holding a Game Night Fundraiser Friday, March 17 at our new home at Regency Park Library in New Port Richey.
It’s a donation based fundraiser, totally free to
attend and play games, enjoy some food and see TDT’s 2017 robot, built for the Velocity Vortex game.
Give what you can, if you can, and if you can’t give, just come play with us and see why FIRST Tech Challenge is such an awesome engineering competition.
People often ask us about the duct tape hats, flowers, bows, clothing accessories, book marks and other items we share at events or sport in photos, and whether we sell them. It’s been on our radar a long time, and now we’ve finally done it and are happy to announce the opening of our online store!
Our team duct shop features all of the above, plus hipster glasses, wallets and bracelets. And this week, you can special order bouquets of duct tape roses for Valentine’s Day.
Visit our Store page to see our catalog, and please let us know if you have ideas for other duct tape items!
Your purchases completely support Team Duct Tape.
