Purdue Workshop Trip

Our team has recently participated in one of the most popular FTC events; “2017 Indiana FIRST Forums”. This event provides a vibrant atmosphere for learning, training, and discussion, and gets everyone geared up for a successful year of FIRST! The event started at 8:00 AM and concluded at 4:00 PM. It was beneficial especially for the rookie teams but our school’s team learned a lot from professional judges of the competition in the Q&A sessions. Our rookie members also gained more knowledge about building, 3D design, fundraising opportunities, and programming. Students also experienced the college life by participating in a college tour for an hour. We also have visited the library and some technology classes at Purdue University. In short, students enjoyed it a lot and our goal for next year is to participate in the event as speakers! Our robotics members would like to spread the word of a STEM to those who are in need and they want to share their experience with those who are new to the FIRST community and to the field of robotics.

 

 

Ohio State Fair

We had a great time at the Ohio State Fair presenting the robot and exploring around. We were able to reach out to about 3,500 people. Even raising a small amount of money in donations to go towards a new 3D printer. We had the chance to meet a small FLL team and an FRC team as well. Afterwards, we had a team picnic which included fishing. Although no fish were caught we still had a great time out there.

Summer Camp Setup

We gathered in order to rearrange the room. Now that robotics will have our own room, we had to remove all of the equipment for the POE class. We also had to transport all of the Lego robotics materials to the room. Continue reading “Summer Camp Setup”
