Sunday, October 1 2023/Cambridge Science Festival – FTC Robotics Display and Showcase
The Cambridge Science Festival Robot Zoo is returning in 2023 with a date of Sunday, October 1st!
Wolfpack Machina, GNCE, Pioneer, Team Unlimited, and one other MA FIRST Tech Challenge(FTC) team, will be demonstrating their robots using the POWERPLAY game. This has been a really fun event in the past – both to run robots again on the game field and collaborate, and to show the public what FTC is all about. Our group is usually the most visited part of the Robot Zoo with about 10,000 people coming through!
Call to Action – 1 more Team Needed
We are looking for one (1) more team to participate in the event. If you want to participate and get more details about what’s required, please contact: Francis Schaeffer, Wolfpack’s coach, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
NOTE: To participate a team needs a working POWERPLAY bot, and needs to be able to be present from 11am to 5pm on Sunday, Oct 1.
Saturday, December 2, 2023/FTC Team 12566 Showcase and Fundraiser Event at DCU Center
FTC Team 12566 AZTECHS will be hosting an evening at the DCU Center in Worcester! The event will serve a dual purpose – not only as a fundraiser for teams – but also as a fantastic team bonding experience, all while enjoying a fun and social night at the game.
