Great Tweet by Roboticon Tampa Bay - We didn't know they didn't have the Roboticon Challenge at this event last year. Pretty neat to find out we were the first winners.

AEO Studios Meeting

Had an awesome meeting with Alan and Drew. Showed them the projects we've been working on for Nightmares at the Majestic. We love that they have included us in this project, we're learning a lot - everything from business plans to real world applications for what we do in FIRST.

 

One thing we did't expect is that they'd like up to come to the kick-off party this weekend. We always thought this was for adults only!

AEO Studios, Inc, one of our long term supporters for both our FLL and our FTC teams, invited us to work with them on their latest project - Nightmares at the Majestic!


Renaissance Robotics is so excited to have a small part in getting this productions props, robotics and automations ready for the October opening. Working with AEO Studios, allows us to stretch our skill set and have a real world application for things we've learned in FIRST.

                       

Renaissance Robotics is Bringing STEM to New Journey Youth Center

Posted by 5937 Renaissance Robotics on June 11, 2014 at 2:05 PM Comments comments (0)

Renaissance Robotics is excited to be working with Apopka's New Journey Youth Center (NJYC) for 8 weeks this summer.

At NJYC, we will te

ach their first ever STEM and Robotics program. This program is completely designed and presented by us - by kids, for kids! Our program includes an Engineering Encounters Bridge Design Contest that will prepare them for the national and local competition next year.

 Renaissance Robotics had five members, (Adam, Gwen, Jesse, Morgan & Rhiannon), who competed in the National Engineering Encounters Bridge Design Contest contest this year and were eligible for the local competition. The top 10 teams get to compete locally for prizes. Adam and Rhiannon split the 3rd place $100 prize at the local level. Morgan ranked 4th. One of our outreach goals for the 2014-2015 season is to increase the number of kids competing in the Engineering Ecounters Bridge Contest, which is why we are excited to bring this program to New Journey Youth Center.

In addition to the Engineering Encounters Bridge Design competition, we will also be presenting robotics, personal development, paper towers, chocolate ashalt, city design, chess, and more!

NJYC gives every teen a voice and has become a place of refuge, support and guidance for many local teems. NJYC's mission is to provide teens with useful life resources they will need to become successful, self sufficent, and a valuable asset to society.

Renaissance Robotics had five members, (Adam, Gwen, Jesse, Morgan & Rhiannon), who competed in the National Engineering Encounters Bridge Design Contest contest online this year and were eligible for the local competition at the University of Central Florida.


The top 10 teams get to compete locally for prizes. Adam and Rhiannon split the 3rd place $100 prize at the local level. Morgan ranked 4th. The brothers who took 1st and 2nd were very gracious, and even gave us tips on how to improve for next year.
