The kickoff meeting for the FIRST Robotics Competition was held on Saturday, January 9, 2016.  The game rules were released on that day, and the team was able to begin their strategy session and discuss build options. The turnout was amazing: 27 students, 9 mentors, and assorted parents.  We’re off….

The first week of the build season has been exciting, productive, and filled with great moments and memories.  We would like to thank everyone involved in this undertaking, and share some valuable information with you as we head into week 2.
First off, a huge thank you to the parents who provided the team food during the week. The amount of thinking, brainstorming, and creativity exhibited by the students and the mentors definitely wouldn’t be possible (especially for the calorie-crushing teenagers) without your support parents.
Secondly, the mentors all deserve great appreciation for the progress they have facilitated with our students and our robot.
