We were able to get a special opportunity to view up close, a brand new F-18 on it's maiden flight. One of our mentors is in the military and was gracious and kind enough to let us get up close and look into the cockpit as well as tell us how it works. It was a really fun and unique experience.
Hello FIRST fans,
At 7 P.M. Eastern Standard Time, FIRST revealed the sneak peak trailer for their 2017 competition. They also revealed the name of the competition which is "FIRST STEAMWORKS". If you haven't seen it yet, watch it down below.
Have you heard of Sparkfun? If you haven't, Sparkfun is a local Colorado company located just north of Boulder, Colorado. They make hardware that works with the open source platform Arduino. If you don't know what that is, then all we can say is that you're not invested heavily enough to STEM ;-). Anyway, every year they host a competition called AVC (Autonomous Vehicle Competition) and we were invited. We set up a booth and presented to a class full of people about FRC as well as show off Frisbeebot and Totebot. We invited our Regional teammates 1410: Release the Kraken to come up with us as well. We all had loads of fun. We will be going there next year so we hope we can see you there then
Not all schools are K-12 like STEM, for those schools who only go to 8th grade, they hold high school fairs. One such school is All-American Academy. We were asked to come with our assistant principals to both locations to talk about our school from the student perspective. It was a lot of fun and we talked to a lot of great parents and kids.
