And with spring brings Varsity sports which unfortunately wins out over robotics this time of year. But have no fear! The eighth graders have stepped up to begin to learn about FTC and the Tetrix kit. They begun to strip our robot down to the chassis, while simultaneously building another holonomic drive chassis. What a great way to learn about engineering – by reverse engineering! They see how it was put together, appreciate the complexity of the robot, and are brainstorming about next year’s design already! New recruits! Are you ready!?!
