Our old practice space at Great River recently went under construction, so we moved to a new space in Avalon so we could work in a less busy and more appropriate space. This move has been a simple and seamless transition, and we are excited to see how our team progresses in this space.
Team members from FTC Mythic and FRC No Mythic went to the Mall of America for Halloween. They gave costumed children a chance to drive robots, as part of the Allergy-Free Zone put on by the Anaphylaxis and Food Allergy Association of MN. As always, our students loved the kids, and the kids had a blast!
For the first time, No Mythic traveled to Duluth to the summer Gitchi Gummi Get Together. This 1 1/2 day mini-regional is hosted by the Duluth East Daredevils, and features more matches and more networking time than most mini-regionals. Our team co-scouted with the Robettes, which was a huge success. One highlight of the event this year was the mentor match. Watch mentors try to control the robots and move gears below.
University of Minnesota’s Triangle fraternity is sponsoring No Mythic for at least the third year in a row. Fraternity members came out Sunday to see the robot drive, pick up gears, and climb. They asked great questions about the drive train, CAD, batteries, 3-D printed parts, and more. Thank you Triangle!
