On Sunday, December 3rd, Penn Robotics hosted the FLL District Event held at Discovery Middle School. Students Nathan Doshi and Justin Ralston spent time with the event coordinators: Allison Adams and Bob Stevenson, and Mishawaka’s Robotics Team to plan the competition. Many jobs were given to our team members to help with the competition, including assisting with judging rooms, set-up, clean-up, and displaying our own booths to show off our robots. Penn’s FTC teams worked with Mishawaka to present what they’ve done in the season so far and talk about their robotics programs.

In addition, before awards were given out, Penn and Mishawaka gave presentations about their robotics programs, including community events, classroom integration, and possible scholarships. Along with many smaller robots, we demonstrated our T-Shirt Launcher Robot. We shot 21 shirts into the crowd and it was a huge hit, especially with the FLL teams.

Overall, the event was a great success. The tournament brought in 22 FLL teams to compete, along with over 400 spectators. Although this community event has been organized by PHMEF in the past, we are looking forward to future years working with the MEF.
