FTC Saratoga Outreach
On Saturday, January 20th, four FTC teams from Cupertino Robotics went to the Saratoga Public Library. Teams 4950, 7610, 11466, and 13834 showcased as well as demonstrated how their robots worked. Through this event, many children were able to drive around the robots and learn more about FIRST and the annual challenge. Along with that, the FTC teams talked with other teams that attended this event.
FTC Carmichael Qualifier
On Sunday, January 14th, three FTC teams from Cupertino Robotics competed at qualifying tournament in Carmichael. For teams 4950, 11466, and 13834, this was the culmination of months of hard work over the course of the season, and they were incredibly excited for the opportunity to compete. Our teams all played in the semifinals and we won various awards, with 4950 even having the change to qualify for regionals!
Let’s take a popular song: Humble by Kendrick Lamar. In Cupertino Robotics, our FTC division sought to utilize the popularity of the song to spread the FIRST messages to the community around them. On our Youtube channel, this theme of this parody is gracious professionalism, an important principle in FIRST. Our hope is anyone will be to identify with the music and carry that message of gracious professionalism with them in their everyday lives.
