Lightning Turtles Build Season Week 2 Newsletter
Our first weekly newsletter is out and caps our first week since the 2018 FRC Game – Power Up – was announced worldwide on Saturday, January 6th.
As we get closer to winter break, The Lightning Turtles are finishing up training activities in preparation for the Power Up Reveal in January 6th.
We had a great night at Culver’s! Through strong social media outreach and perseverance (including fabricating 3 street signs as well as marketing to customers at the Holiday Station across the street), Tuesday night December 5th was a banner night for Culver’s and for our team fundraising efforts. With the 10% giveback from Culver’s and tips we received, we raised $310 and educated many, many customers and intrigued kids from the community with our ball-shooting robot.
Half our crew delivered meals to customers in the drive lane and the dining room, and the other half talked about the Sibley robotics program, our growth and our passion for problem-solving and engineering.
Thanks to all who came out on a very cold and slippery evening. For a bit, our passion became your passion and we appreciate your patronage and donations!
Three members of The Lightning Turtles team participated in the Robettes GRIP (Girls in Robotics Improving Performance) workshop at Visitation School on Sat Nov 12th.
