Lately the Intrepid Investigative Duo had been in the midst of some very fluctuating weather. It had just become too cold. So they decided it was vacation
time. Since vacations in lovely, warm places are for relaxing, updates will now only come on Tuesdays.

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.
