The Techie Tigers Robotics: Team 8290 are at the library every Tuesday to share with the public what they’re up to. They’d like to recruit more members as well as collect $2,500 in donations to cover travel and entry fees for their next First Tech Challenge competition in December. 

The team of local FTC robotics students (the bulk attend Rolling Hills Middle School, but also Oak Ridge, St. Francis and Cordova High) built their robot, Mild Sauce, though they’ll customize it once given the challenge this fall.
FTC is designed for students in seventh through 12th grade. Teams are responsible for designing, building and programming their robots to compete against other teams. For more information e-mail [email protected].
