Our FIRST LEGO League friends, Team Mu, also an alumni team for some Team Duct Tape members, returned home this week from the FLL US Open Championship held this past weekend at Wright State University in Dayton, Ohio with some notable awards and recognition.
Team Mu received the 1st Place Innovative Design Award, and recognition as a Top 10 Team for Gracious Professionalism. Rick C. received the Youth Mentor Award.
A short piece about Team Mu will air on the Fox 13 6:00pm news this Thursday, May 14, at around 6:50pm.
Go Team Mu!!
Your friends at Team Duct Tape
FTC Team 2845 joined East Lake High School’s FRC Team Krunch and FLL Team Mu at Learning is for Everyone’s LIFE Fest 2008 Home and Alternative Learner’s Conference at Eckerd College in St. Petersburg, FL on Saturday Sept. 20, for a full day of FIRST demos and outreach.
Over 300 people attended LIFE Fest, learning about all sorts of community learning opportunities, including great youth programs like FIRST. Team members used their time at the event to explain the rudiments of FTC, demonstrate programming, and generally let people see teenagers having a great time with science and technology.
Team Duct Tape was even able to help out at the event by providing — duct tape! — to other groups needing to secure extension cords or otherwise fasten things together.
Team Duct Tape – Always Ready to Help! 🙂
