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.

 

 

I am the Engineering Director for our team (I am in charge of the Engineering and the Controls departments.). I have been in robotics for 6 years coming up on 7. 3 of which were Lego robotics of those 3, two were FLL, and the other was sumo-bots. I am a Junior in school, and plan on majoring in Robotic engineering at MIT. I would like to minor in Aerospace engineering.

Team 6450 JAGBOTS Summer Camp – Day 2

June 13th was the second day of our robotics summer camp. The students split into two groups and began to assemble their robot. The two groups built a simple base and also added the electronics on. In the engineering notebook class, the students learned how to start an engineering notebook and made their first entry and will continue to make entries until the last day of the camp.
