Project Robotica Grand Opening

Since the beginning of the summer, our team has been working on a project called Project Robotica. Project Robotica(or PR) is a wiki site designed for youth robotics teams. This allows any team member, coach, team parent, judge ect. to join and add information about their particular programs. If you’d like to view the project and even contribute, you can see it here: http://projectrobotica.wiki

FIRST Promote Video

Each year, teams are able to optionally create a video that answers a question posed at the beginning of the season. This year the question was, “What makes FIRST work?” We were awarded for our submission at the Second Qualifier, and were nominated for the award at state! You can view our submission on our YouTube account here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rp0rR0-cPus

Library Facebook Livestream

Our local Ramsey County Library has been live-streaming storytimes on their Facebook account. They had us come in and get featured during a Robotics-themed reading, and we got to show off our robot and FIRST.
