FTC 2015-2016 Kickoff

Greetings, and welcome to the 2015-2016 school year! Following some uncertainty about our club’s future, I’m happy to report that Oakville Robotics is alive and well, at least for the next year.

We have two returning members this year, Club President Jacob Kauffmann (me) and Vice President Drake Follmer. We’ve got around 15 members total. A full list will be posted once we’re separated into teams.

Speaking of teams, we’ve received funding from Ranken Technical College to cover two team registrations for the 15-16 FIRST Tech Challenge. Four of our members attended the Missouri FTC Kickoff event at UMSL, and we’re excited to get started on our Res-Q robots. We’re in the process of ordering our part kits. We’ve received a grant that will cover the new Android-based control system, and we’ve got a few outside sponsors who will hopefully cover our TETRIX kits.

We’ll try to keep the public updated on our progress once we start designing our bots. For now, feel free to contact us via the email addresses on our “About” page.
