F.I.R.S.T Robotics Update - Competitions & Events
The FIRST FRC club is doing big and amazing things over at the Great Lakes Science Center. We are just weeks away from the Buckeye Regional FIRST FRC competition at Cleveland State University's Wolstein Center! We have a lot of work to get done between now and then and the pressure is on! The RoboAviators are ready and motivated to make it to competition and hopefully win Davis a trophy! The Buckeye Regional Competition will be from March 23rd-26th.
On March 2nd, The Great Lakes Science Center in collaboration with NASA Glenn Research Center hosted a live Q&A event with the International Space Station and Astronaut Stephanie Wilson, who will be an astronaut for the Artemis mission to the moon. Two of our FIRST Robotics members, Abdalla Robi and Victoria Tellez, pre-recorded a video asking their questions to the astronauts on the ISS. In real-time, the videos were played and the astronauts answered their questions.
