It's Robot Season! Volunteers wanted, sign up now!

The FRIST (For the Recognition and Inspiration of Science and Technology) 2013-2014 season is in full swing. I am committed to be the Sacramento Regional FRC Lead Robot Inspector for the 2nd year.  Unfortunately due to work conflicts I am not able to attend the Central Valley Regional this year.

Events currently going on now are FLL (First Lego League) and FTC (First Tech Challenge).  Both are very exciting and FLL covers the younger age range.  There are lots of YouTube videos to check out, again very exciting events!!

I have posted about the big high school robots in the past, that will start in Jan 2014.  However many FRC teams are starting now in the off-season for team and skill building.  I have been hanging out a little with team 3257, the VorTECHS.

FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) inspires young people to be science and technology leaders, by engaging them in exciting mentor-based programs that build science, engineering and technology skills, that inspire innovation, and that foster well-rounded life capabilities including self-confidence, communication and leadership.
