Middleton High School will be hosting the 3rd annual Tampa Build-It Day on October 22, 2011 from 9am to 3pm. A full Bowled Over! field will be set-up in the Middleton cafeteria with plenty of tables and workspace for everyone to work on their robots. The Build-It Day event is an opportunity for FTC teams to have access to a practice field, exchange design ideas, help rookie teams with building their first robot, and attend workshops.
Some of the workshop topics we are planning to include are:
- Using PTC Creo to Design Your Robot,
- Challenges of using Anderson PowerPole Connectors,
- Introduction to ROBOTC, and Programming Sensors with ROBOTC.
Middleton High School is located at 4801 N. 22nd Street, Tampa, FL.
