Memphis Public Libraries Start New Robotics Team for Teens!

Introducing Memphis Mech Warriors

Memphis Public Libraries’ teen learning lab CLOUD901 is excited to announce its first-ever Robotics Team. Yes, a robotics team! Memphis Mech Warriors, led by CLOUD901 staffer Marion Anderson, consists of 12 talented teens who are gaining the STEAM skills and experience needed to compete in tomorrow’s work world.

Help Robotics Team Represent Memphis at Regional Competition!

Currently, the team is building a robot for state and regional competitions, using equipment such as 3-D printers and state-of-the-art design software. They are taking ideas and turning them into reality! To cover costs, the Memphis Library Foundation is raising funds for the team to compete, but we need your help!

Pink Palace – Dream Big Premiere Night

As part of the Dream Big Premiere Night at the Pink Palace, FedEx invited the MechWarriors (Team 4764) to demo their robot. FLL was also represented at the event (Thanks SLS Robotics!). Thanks for spreading the word about FLL and FIRST!

Take a look at Dream Big:

Some FRC Resorces

A couple of great documents I found while looking for ideas for teams:

FRC Survival Guide

Idiot’s ‘Complete’ Guide to FRC (great doc…..but I personally do not think there are any Idiots in FIRST!)

Bumper Hardware (you can order bumper kits from here, but they also have videos on how to build them)
