    We had a fantastic turnout today for our meeting. Over 20 people showed up. Some really great presentations by Morgan, Amy Hu, and Carlton Corbitt. Thanks a bunch. Our Badge build went great! Everyone who built the Alternating LED circuit completed it successfully. Many learned how to read a schematic, how to identify different components, and some good troubleshooting skills. We, the organizers, learned a lot too. For example what wire not to use and to order extra battery holders ;-). Overall, it was a huge success. I want to say thank you to Steve Ghertner who did a great job explaining the theory of operation and purchased and bagged the components. Also, a big thanks to all the senior members who helped others out. You made it that much more successful. Thank You. It you have an idea for a new build, please let us know. We'd love to hear what you have in mind. Have a great Easter!

      I'd been looking for a reason to refresh/restart using descrete transistors, The build was a wonder refresher on using Emitter Base Collector. Thanks

    Couple of notes for tomorrows build.

    -Batteries, of course, not included. We will have some for a dollar a set (4). You will need 4xAAA.

    -We no longer have lanyards. The ones we did have (the purple ones) were donated. I will try to get my hands on a substitute tomorrow if I can/have time. Feel free to bring your own if you have one.

    If you didnt get a chance to order we will have several extra breadboards and component kits available for you to use tomorrow during the build. After our general show and tell we will do a small presentation on the build and then move to the Blue Classroom to construct.

    Hope to see everyone out tomorrow.

      Hello, Gabby. Sorry for the delay. We havent participated in competitions as a group per say. Members have and do attend and participate in competitions like Robot Battles and SUMO. We also have competitions within the group like SUMO and line following. Hope this answers your question.
