Techie Titans advanced to East Super-Regionals again in its 2nd year from VA State Championship this weekend. It was an intense competition among many great teams. We partnered with FROGBots and Tuxedo Pandas, and became the Winning Alliance in our division through awesome partnership.

We also got Connect Award 1st place, and qualified for East Super-Regionals through both Connect Award and Finalist Alliance from State. We are also proud that our coach received Compass Award 1st place for “Outstanding guidance and mentorship to FTC team”.

We had our FTC Android/JAVA Programming Workshop yesterday - we had participants from both existing teams (team members who are moving into Programming area) and from new teams (who are transitioning to FTC).

We started with overview of the new platform, then the programming environment with Android Studio, FTC Apps (Driver Station and Robot Controller), FTC SDK, Event driven and linear programming model, example Op Modes, build, deployment, drive, Tele Op and then Test and Debug.

We also included Resources and helpful links for new teams, Award categories, Engineering Notebook requirements, and finally our lesson learned.

We showed our last season's robot and also gave demo with our DemoBot we made this season.

FTC 9901 participated at the Girl Scouts Maker Day on May 7 at Northern Virginia Community College, Annandale campus. We partenred with 3 local FRC teams (5549, 2186, 116) and Nova Labs Robotics FLL teams to demonstrate our robots from past season to the Girls Scouts and visitors.

It was an amazing line up of robots there - from LEGO Bots to giant FRC robots, occupying the whole mid-zone of the Gym. All teams demonstrated their robots and shared what they learned from FIRST programs.

Girl Scouts from 12 troops showed off their skills in STEM displaying amazing projects like a watchdog LEGO robot and super slime, and also many Arts and Crafts projects.

Here are some pictures from DC United STEM Night on April 23 at RFK Stadium. FIRST was invited to participate in the event. We partnered with FRC team 614 KnightHawks to demo our FTC robot and their FRC robot (from this past season) at the end of the field. There was another team from Williamsburg Middle School with LEGO robots.

There were many interested kids and parents to see the robot demo at the beginning of the game. It was a lot of fun - both the robot demo and DC United vs. New England Revolution game.
