FIRST Tech Challenge Kickoff Hosted by LO Robotics

On September the 9th, the FTC Centerstage challenge was released to the world. All four LO Robotics teams collaborated to plan, run, and host the Kickoff at Lake Oswego High School. All three FTC teams gave presentations on various parts of FTC. As for teams, Lake Monsters helped setup and sold concessions, Mostly Operational ran the auditorium presentation and coordinated between teams and the school, ToborTech created the poster and emceed for the Kickoff, and All Hands on Tech created the schedule and signage for the event, as well as inviting other teams. Overall, over 100 people attended, with strong representation from both LO & non-LO teams. Everyone had a great time and hopefully learned a bit. We look forward to the upcoming season; click here to watch the kickoff video.

FTC Teams Visit Autodesk Portland

FTC teams 18119 Mostly Operational, 8610 ToborTech, and 18127 All Hands on Tech visits the Portland Autodesk office on August 9th. This is the second year the teams have visited, and our LO Robotics Student Reps arranged this years outing. Members from all three teams were treated with a tour of the building, including the maker space and rooftop view. Then, team members got a brief presentation on software the Autodesk FIRST interns are working on, which is designed for FIRST teams; team members also got a chance to try out a beta version of the software. Lastly, they got to ask questions to a panel of Autodesk staff and interns, learning about everything from the company culture to the various career paths the staff took. All three teams had a great time, learned a bit about Autodesk, and just maybe got inspired to join Autodesk's FIRST Internship program.
