Yesterday, we went and demoed FTC at the Hudson Valley FLL Championship with the Techno Chix, team 18. We’ve done this demo for 3 years, and it never gets old!
This year, we got a lot of interest in the program. Many FLL-ers were graduating out of the program and came to us for advice for newbies. It was really great to see their expressions when we said that there is a 2 minute driver-controlled period. Who knew that kids are so eager to drive around a robot? 🙂 But beyond that, we told them the importance of writing journal entries, organizing, reaching out to sponsors, and presenting FIRST.
Although we didn’t get to take on the army again, it was a great day of outreach!
Watching the FLL award ceremony. These kids have so many amazing ideas! #omgFIRST
