Come join us to see how the Waukee FTC Robotics team is using Java to help create their robots this season! There will be a live demonstration of the creations as well as a talk about how the robots work and are programmed.

About the team: Team Pathfinders 13497 FTC team is a group of eight 9th and 10th grade students from Waukee Community School District. FTC teams (grades 7-12) design, build, program, and operate robots to compete in a head-to-head challenge in an alliance format. Guided by adult coaches and mentors, students develop STEM skills while learning to use engineering principles, as well as recognizing the value of hard work, innovation, and collaboration. The team engages in several activities and events to promote FTC and STEM, while gaining the ability to access several FIRST college scholarships.

Note the early start time! We hope to see you there!
