Fresh from Lockheed Martin Eweek, TDT members are back to work with drive practice, and more outreach readiness, gearing up to exhibit at the Tampa Bay Engineers Week Banquet Friday night, and the USF Engineering Expo on Saturday. In between,the team got some good press from 83 Degrees Media and The Laker , highlighting our journey to the FTC State Championship .
With three outreach events this week, team members are working in shifts to get everything ready for the State Championship. Burning out motors during E-week demos added some new challenges, and the expense of 2nd day shipping to get replacements in on time, but we’re going full steam ahead, darn the torpedos!
We’re heading to Orlando tomorrow, to join in Lockheed-Martin Global Training and Logistics E-Week celebration. There’s going to be a big complement of FTC teams there, including all three World Championship bound teams. We’re looking forward to a great day with Lockheed Martin engineers, sharing what we love about FIRST Tech Challenge, giving them a chance to drive our robot and – the icing on the cake! – enjoying a tour of the Orlando facility with engineers there!
We can’t wait!
