Mentoring RoboForce Team 13356
This season, we mentored a rookie FTC team, RoboForce. We taught them the basics of Java, Android Studio, GitHub, Autodesk Inventor, and hardware. We occasionally dropped in their meetings to make sure they were doing fine and helped them along the way. At the Burlingame QT, they coincidentally alliance partners with us, and they were the captain of the winning alliance at the Sacramento QT. We are very proud of their work and hope to see them compete at NorCal Regionals.
RoboAvatars India Outreach - June/July 2019
Over the past summer, we did international outreach in 2 different cities in India. We did 2 sessions at a robotics academy in Chandigarh, and 1 session at Blue Bird High School in Panchkula. Most of the students had a basic understanding of robotics, and we gave a more in-depth explanation of the design process. We also gave them tips on how to implement these principles into their own FLL robots, which they have begun building.
