Team Duct Tape enjoyed a visit from writer Suzanne Schmidt, of the Land O’Lakes Patch today. Ms. Schmidt learned about TDT during a visit to Sun Lake High School a few weeks back, where she met one of our team members who invited her to learn more about our team and FIRST. Chris Squared ( Chris 1.0 and Chris 3.0) were on hand to showcase robot design and development, programming and what FIRST is all about. The Patch is an up and coming new media, with a great local community focus. The Old Northeast Patch covered the Seminole High School competition a couple of weeks ago, and the Seminole Heights Patch did a great piece on Middleton High School’s great win at the USF Polytechnic event in Lakeland last Saturday.
TDTs Super Cube is on the road today, stopping first at Sun Lake High School in Land O’ Lakes, to run demos as part of the school’s Teen Tech Week activities. Then it’s off to dinner at The Breakfast Nook, where Team Duct Tape members will undertake a different type of service – dinner service — during the TDT Benefit Dinner the restaurant is hosting for us. Team members will be serving up spaghetti with marinara sauce and meatballs, salad and bread and a special Team Duct Tape dessert, designed by one of our members.
Proceeds from the dinner will go towards Team Duct Tape’s FTC World Championship journey, which is just two weeks away!
