Game Manual Update Ep 6: The Intrepid Investigators Murder A Beloved Team Member, and Also Xander.

GENERAL UPDATES

The officers had been working hard on this case for four weeks. Sadly, they had to work even harder as time was running out. Week 0 was approaching.

To make things worse, working with a 2015 Control System and a 2014 FMS System (FMS-Lite or 3rd party equivalent) wasn’t really all that easy.

As if on cue, a man entered the room with a deus ex machinegun.

“Sir!” said one officer when she looked up from the laptop. “Weapons are not allowed in this establishment!”

“No time to talk! I have a delivery.”

With that he walked to their desk and put down a single piece of paper with the link: http://wpilib.screenstepslive.com/s/4485/m/24193/l/308349-running-a-2015-week-zero

Minecraft Tournament Update

The Minecraft Tournament was a huge success, and Team 116 proud to have helped them work towards their goal of feeding kids in Kenya. The kids had a lot of fun playing their game while also displaying leadership and teamwork skills.

The organization that created the event is known as Touching Heart. It was inspiring to see the level of professionalism that the children displayed when facilitating the event.

The gaming was split into two sessions. Between them, we had the opportunity to present to the kids about who we are and what we do. We talked about FIRST and how we were able to get involved in robotics. The kids were really interested in our robot, and how we built it in three months. After a couple of demonstrations, they looked ready to join the first robotics team they could find!

Team 116 looks forward to any future events Touching Heart has lined up for us.

From small changes come big differences [εΔ].
