This year has been quite amazing! I met lots of new people and connected with some old friends 🙂 This post won’t be too much about arch school as I have another post planned for that in the coming weeks to wrap up my studio experience. Rather, these are just some pictures I have in my phone from various social hangouts with my friends. Warning: a lot of food porn.
During the week of March 27-29, I volunteered at the 2014 FIRST Regional Robotics Competition. I did robotics in high school, and as an alumna of the program it is always nice to see the students’ diligence and cooperation. The passion these kids have for technology is inspirational.
FRC (FIRST Robotics Competition) is a program geared towards high schoolers to encourage them to pursue areas in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. Every year, they host a different game. This year, it was Aerial Assist where the robots had to score balls in goals in 2.5 minutes. The first 30 seconds of the match is the autonomous period where robots act according to preprogrammed instructions the teams write themselves, followed by a 2 minute tele-operated mode when players can control their robots using controls.
