Last year was not just a great year for KnightKrawler, but for the District as a whole! Across the District, our wonderful teams made their mark on FIRST, with over 500 friends new and old.
In the 2017-2018 season, The Mounds View School District sported 2 FIRST Robotics Teams, 5 FIRST Tech Challenge teams, and a whopping 17 FIRST LEGO League teams! On top of that, 4 teams from 3 different FIRST competitions went on to Championships, including FLL The Dots, FTC Pony Tail Posse & Height Differential, and yours truly; FRC KnightKrawler.
This amazing representation of our district was highlighted in the District’s magazine, School Talk, in its most recent issue. You can click on “School Talk” in the preceding sentence to see a PDF of the entire magazine, or tap around the following image to read about the District’s Robotics teams specifically.
If you’d like to support one of the local teams, Chippewa Middle School’s The Dots have a GoFundMe to help pay for their 2018 Championship costs. Smaller & younger teams often struggle to pay for travel expenses, & your contribution would be greatly appreciated. They’re a wonderfully intelligent and driven team, and we hope they’re able to start the 2018-2019 Season in the best position possible.
This year, there’s an opportunity for teams not just to learn about the the competition, but decide an important part of the entire game:
Deep Space’s Name the Planet contest is just what it sounds like, enabling any team to make their mark on FIRST history by deciding the entire planet’s name for the 2018-2019 season.
Do you have any suggestions that you’d like KnightKrawler to consider for their submission?
