ausTIN CANs host VEX tournament

Anderson High School students and parents hosted a successful VEX tournament on Saturday, October 28th. It was a great opportunity for teams to come together so early in the season to compete with other area teams. A total of 28 teams were in attendance, and smiles were prevalent even as bots were breaking down. (More data for analysis!)

Congratulations to the e-lime-n-ators, Team # 59990Z from Boerne, TX, for having such a capable robot and such gracious team members! They cleaned up on awards: Tournament Champs, Excellence Award, AND Robot Skills winner!!! Joining them for a winning alliance were College Station High School teams 8332A and 83973A. Good luck to all 3 of you at the State competition in February!

Many thanks to all the volunteers who answered the call and helped our event run smoothly. We could not have done it without you!

Community Outreach 9/23/17 - 9/24/17

Members of the ausTIN CANs teams participated in community outreach programs the weekend of September 23-24, 2017 in conjunction with the Boy Scouts of America. One group presented to a Scout STEM camp in Bastrop and discussed Lego Mindstorms robotics. Another group took FRC and VEX robots to a Cub Scout Pack meeting in our area to promote general STEM awareness and participation with the next generation of CANs. It was great to see some excitement generated in the field of engineering.
