Team Members on the Web

Our diverse group of team members are often active outside of their Team Duct Tape experience with a variety of projects and interests.  Two of our programmers carry their love of code into realms beyond robotics . Check out their websites at Chris’s Programs and Projects and Levitank 2D and see great young minds at work.

Check back to learn about other team members’ work and play.

Everybody Dance!

A mentor from FTC Team 450 Children of the Swamp, shares hopes for more autonomous programs in the upcoming Port Orange RobotFest competition, on December 12, and a little code for a hoped for dance-off. Check it out at the FL FTC Forum:

TDT Web Pick: SPARK – Starter Programs for the Advancement of Robotics Knowledge

iRobot has launched a new robotics education portal at http://ow.ly/pxSn . Two sections: Educational Resources and Cool Stuff, both take you to some pretty cool stuff!

The Educational Resources section serves  iRobot’s committment to “supporting Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) education in schools. By using robots, students have fun, teachers get to teach in new ways, and parents get to learn new things along with their children. This is where educators and parents can find robot-related resources to help build STEM curricula and to foster an appreciation for STEM education.”  There are stories, teaching resources, and activities for students in K-college.

Cool Stuff features games, photo galleries, projects and more.

SPARK purports to be partnering with FIRST, as well as CMU, BeatBots, Topobo and Paro

Looks like a good and growing resource to keep an eye on.
