So why THOR you ask?  This year we have new awesome opportunities for off-season competition, training and fun.  THOR I at Pembroke in August is our opportunity to continue the successful season we just finished.  At THOR I we will be testing new technology and programming that we finished over the summer, and  we will trade-up drive team roles after losing two drive team members.  This is also a time for the new rookie members to see a competition up close and personal.  THOR II in Raleigh in October is a special opportunity.  There we will have two robots so more team members will get a chance to be on a drive team…hmmm, will the junior team beat the veteran?…come and find out!

OUTREACH

AAMI Wiley Elementary School Demonstration

Unfortunately the AAMI Wiley Elementary Demonstration has been cancelled due to a lack of student participation. Thank you to those of you who signed up. Hopefully we won’t have to cancel anymore events this year!

Winston-Salem Girls World Expo

Although the event is not taking place until later, be on the lookout to participate in the Girls World Expo in the coming months! Students will have the chance to demo their robots to a significant portion of the community and also share more about the FIRST organization. Further information will be provided as plans are solidified.

MARKETING

The Marketing team is still working on the trailer design for ECG Robotics, as well as planning for the upcoming Robotics season.
