On November 17th, John Young Middle School hosted a FIRST Lego League tournament. This event involved 20 teams competing to advance to state level competitions and massed about 400-500 people. With the help of FTC members, Team 135 ran a booth for FLL teams to learn more about where the FIRST program can take them. Penn–along with Mishawaka robotics– talked about their respective robots and promoted the ideals of FIRST robotics. During the competition, we also helped bring teams to their designated competition areas. After the competition, David Simonetti and Grant Harrington gave a joint presentation with Mishawaka talking about ME and FRC in front of the crowd. This was a great event to transition and prepare FTC members for FRC. It was also beneficial for recruit incoming freshman to Penn’s FTC program.
