Welcome to all!


Today is 2809 day!  It was a great night for our new member meeting.  We had a pretty good turnout of students, mostly those new to K-Botics.

We talked about our team, and FIRST, and showed some videos of competition footage.

We played name games and Dr. tangle

We also gave a demo of some past year’s robots.  Good work K-Bots for getting these up and running!

The design/teamwork challenge of the day was an egg drop.image

we worked in several small groups to protect the egg, with the given materials.image

Here we are, waiting to see which eggs survive the drop from the 3rd floor.image

Many survived, but this one definitely did not!  Good call on the plastic bags covering the landing zone.

image

We eagerly unwrapped our eggs

image

Here are some of the ones that survived.

We had just enough time to clean up and take a turn driving the robots in the hallway as parents arrived to pick up their children.

It looks like our season will be great, with this many interested and enthusiastic potential new members, and such leadership demonstrated by our returning members.  Thanks everyone for the hard work.

P.S. Happy 2809 day birthday to Olivia.
