Hosting Team 7437, Team LED
We first met Team 7437, aka team LED, at the first round qualifier in McDonough this year. When we found out that they were a team of home schooled students who had no field on which to practice, we decided to invite them to practice on our field, and to scrimmage us on two separate occasions. We worked together to discuss our robots' designs, and possible strategies for working together. We will both be going to the same competition at Wheeler, and are happy to have some ties to a fellow Marietta team!
Our high school team loves the FIRST organization, and we were hoping to share the excitement of competition with the middle schoolers of our school! In order to entice them with what they can do with robotics, we took our field setup and robot, and did four demonstrations for them in our media center. The students were very receptive, and many are excited to participate in FLL next year.
Jacob's FLL Field project
The middle school FLL team that will be starting next year needed a field! We enlisted the help of our very own Jacob Ramsey, who built them a field to practice and build on next year!
FLL Field Presentation Ceremony
On January 23rd the Eagle Robotics team presented the gift of a practice FLL field to the Mount Paran Christian School middle school. Student interest is at an all-time high. Although the team isn't formally constituted until the semester ends, the room was packed with students, parents, teachers, and coaches.
The Intern: Landon Schwan
Landon Schwan is in 6th grade at Mount Paran Christian School. He learned about our team through his mom, who teaches in the high school. Landon acts as an intern for our team, providing a great deal of help and motivation. He is very excited for the FLL team we are starting next year. In his free time, he likes to play baseball and Xbox with his friends.
