Lord of the Bricks has a lot going on these next couple of months.  FTC is going to the State Championships; Jr. FLL is wrapping up their season with an Expo event, and FLL is hitting outreach hard in the off-season!

FIRST and Robo Cop

We love science!


FTC Championships...  Yeah!



FRC Regional Competition


MDA MuscleWalk

Super Regionals
    We're going to the movies!!

Regal Cinemas is holding a promo event for the upcoming PG-13 remake of Robo Cop, and they have invited FIRST along!  We will bring our robots, and our presentation board/information.  FLL kids will need to do a build for the outreach, since their robots are no longer together (sorry!).  Saturdays are still open for you guys, since those of you with siblings on the other teams will already be here.  Let me know who is interested.  Potential new teammates are invited to join for the experience. 

The event will be held on a WednesdayFriday andSaturday.  We will likely attend Saturday, February 15 at the Regal Cinema IMAX on Hull Street sometime between noon and 9pm.

We're going to a Science Fair!

Kersey Creek Elementary School in Mechanicsville (Atlee) is holding their annual Science Fair, and we've been invited.  68 kids are submitting their work, and the results of the judging will be revealed on Tuesday, February 25 at 6pm.  We will be performing demos, and possibly using the FTC robot's arm abilities to pick raffle winners.       

We're going to the Championships!

Our FTC team has worked hard, racking up awards along the way!  They are going to the 48-team State Championships on March 1 as the Southwest Virginia Regional Qualifier Think Award Winner.  Come wish them luck as they compete alongside the best of the best (the top winners from each qualifier) in their effort to make it on to Super Regionals in April.

Jr. FLL has also been working (and playing) hard, and will have their chance to show off their work in the Jr. FLL Expo!  This event will take place in conjunction with the FTC State Championships between 10am - 1pm.

FLL teams are also invited to demo their robots and display boards during the FTC event.  We'll bring our robot, and join in on the fun!  Times for this portion are TBD.  Team members let me know if you are coming.       

We're hanging with the Big Bots!

These 120 pound bots will be competing in the Arial Assist Challenge March 20-22nd at the VCU Siegel Center.  The Friday event is open to the public.  FLL, Jr. FLL & FTC teams will be invited to sow off their work.  There are also volunteer opportunities for FTC team members, and all adults!  Let me know who is coming along.

We're playing for a cause!

The Central Virginia MuscleWalk will take place at the Flying Squirrel's diamond on March 30 from 1-4pm.  We will have exhibition space for FLL Jr. FLL & FTC.  Our robots have also formed a "walk" team.  Team and community members can sign up to join our team or donate on our walk page.  Our robots will play for money; so donate now to see how many blocks our FTC bot can pick up!

We're shooting for the moon!

The year, FIRST has introduced a new Super Regional Competition.  Teams will compete at their various FTC State Championships for one of 72 seats at their respective FTC Super Regionals.  Winners at this event can move on to World Competitions in April in St. Louis, MO.  The Eastern Super Regionals will be held at the Your Expo Center in York, PAApril 3-5.
