Dear friends,

Last week we hosted our first Girl Powered Robotics Workshop. Many thanks to Eve, Divya, Alexia, Alex, Emily, Professor Grace, Rucky, and Sarah for helping to run this event.

Our younger students have been busy building VEX robots.  Our older students have been refining their programming skills and learning CAD.

You can view upcoming events on our team CALENDAR.

On October 29th we will attend a post-season FRC event with Hungry Hippo, our FIRST robot from last year.  We will be attending the Bay State Brawl.  Permission slips are available at this link.  Permission slips are due on Wednesday, October 19. Teresa Scott will be organizing carpooling and transportation for this event.  You can sign up to help at this link.  We hope that some 9th grade students will be able to drive this robot.

We will be hosting our first major event of the year on November 5th.  This will be a FIRST LEGO League and VEX Scrimmage.  The rounds will run from 9AM to 12 noon.   Doors will open at 7:30 and we hope to have the floor swept by 1:30.   Sign up to help with this event at this link. We need help from concessions to judges to logistics for this event.

Our biggest event of the year is our FLL Tournament which is December 3rd.

We may attend several possible VEX events in January.

The FIRST Kickoff is January 7th, and our VEX Tournament is Jan 8th.

We will attend Two FIRST District Events this year.

WPI District event March 8-10 (during the break)

Reading High School District Event  March 17-19
