In the News & On the Road – Next Up: Tampa Bay Engineers Week Banquet

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!

A couple of Team Duct Tape members are joining the Florida West Coast Section of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers at this week’s Tampa Bay Engineers Week Banquet.

Held to mark Engineers Week,  this year’s banquet merges the Celebrate Engineering Banquet and the E-Week Banquet to bring together professionals in all fields from all around Tampa and Florida’s west coast to recognize the outstanding achievements of Engineers, Science Teachers, Math Teachers, and Students in our community.

Team Duct Tape is honored to have been invited to join in the event, and will be on hand with our robot and lots of information about FIRST Tech Challenge, and how others can be part of this terrific program.
