The 2011 Tempest ‘n’ Tampa off-season event was a perfect storm of robotics, with FRC team rolling in from Miami, Daytona, Orlando and other parts north and south! The stands were packed, the FTC and FLL workshops were full, and the new season camaraderie was in full swing. Logo Motion raged on the field with all the vigor of the past season, and all the usual antics, including Umbrella Guy on (and off!) jumping stilts .
FIRST Tech Challenge and FIRST LEGO League teams attending the event had the opportunity to enjoy some useful workshops on everything from team marketing to first competition experiences to using sensors and good mechanical design.
Teams had a great time catching up with old friends and making some new ones. And visitors had a ring side seat to all levels of FIRST, and opportunities to talk to students and teams in FRC, FTC and FLL.
It’s great to see Tempest ‘n’ Tampa back in town, offering an off season opportunity to gear up for the new season!
