Introducing All the Grade 8s to FIRST

We had grade 8 day at our school today. All the grade 8s in the area came to learn about high school, and we showed them all about our robot and introduced them to FIRST.

Week 4: Wednesday

We experimented with frictional coefficients today! The lake has frozen as clear as glass, and we had fun walking on it, looking to see the bottom, and even licking the ice.
