This year, Team Neutrino attended the 4th of July Parade in downtown Ames. It was a great experience to reach out to the community and showcase our robot. Our team members had a great time handing out candy to over a hundred spectators. In addition, we were accompanied by FTC Team Photon who showcased their own robot alongside our robot Scorpius. Thank you to all those who attended and we are excited to attend next year’s parade as well!
As we kick off this year’s summer offseason, we would like to mention some upcoming opportunites that will be offered throughout the summer.
We will provide training camps to teach the fundamental principles of each subteam, providing an introduction and overview of what the subteam does. Each training camp is 2-5 days long and requires no previous knowledge, so everyone is welcome.
In addition, we will be meeting with our sponsors for sponsor visits this summer. These interactions will provide valuable networking opportunities for our members, enabling them to connect with our esteemed sponsors and teaching them how to foster connections in a professional environment.
Our seasoned members will also have the opportunity to embark on advanced mechanical and controls projects. These projects are for returning members or members who have experience in that subteam, and will be focusing on challenging projects to help further prepare them for next season.
Lastly, we will be involved in lots of outreach events. By actively engaging with our community, we hope to foster a passion for STEM and have an impact on the community.
Stay connected with us through our team website and social media channels to stay informed about these exciting summer events.
On May 26th we had our first outreach event of the season, CelebrAsian! We presented our robot and engaged with over 600 people, connecting with the community and talking to them about STEM. The event was filled with delicious food and music, as we celebrated the vibrant cultures represented at CelebrAsian. Thanks to all those who attended, we had a blast engaging with attendees and forming connections within the community! We are grateful for this experience and look forward to continuing our outreach efforts.
We are proud to announce that we recently participated in the FIRST World Championship held in Houston, Texas. Although we did not come away with any awards, we would like to congratulate all the teams who did and commend everyone for their hard work and dedication throughout the season.
As we look back on this exciting season, we are grateful for the opportunity to have competed at such a high level with the best teams from around the world. We performed well and we learned a lot from our experiences both on and off the field. We also had the chance to connect and collaborate with other teams, which was a valuable learning experience for everyone involved.
We want to take this opportunity to thank our mentors, parents, sponsors, and supporters for their continuous encouragement and guidance throughout the season. Without their support, we wouldn’t have been able to achieve all that we have this year.
As we close out this season, we want to express our gratitude to everyone who helped make it a success. We had a lot of fun this year, and we are looking forward to continuing to grow and improve in the future.
Thank you again for your support and encouragement, and we can’t wait to see what next season has in store for Team Neutrino.
