Happy 2018! We last left you on Halloween with summaries of many of our October sessions. The Fall 2017 Program concluded on November 15 with a super fun Session Eight that included a little competition. B&B volunteers guided students through a lesson entitled 'Trash in the Yard' in which students worked on teams to build and program their bots for a tournament. This 'Trash in the Yard' competition had students using their bots to push pieces of "trash" (paper cups) across the floor into the territory of the opposing team. Each round was 90 seconds long and points were awarded based on how much trash was left in each team's yard.
Following our final Fall session, the Bits & Bots team had a few weeks off for finals and winter break but with school starting up again we're ready for the start of our Spring 2018 Program. The team had it's first meeting of the year last Tuesday and plan to meet again tomorrow night to finalize the Spring 2018 schedule and talk curriculum. This semester sadly marks the last for many long-term B&B team members who will graduate from Northeastern in May. We will be sad to see them go, but are excited to see younger members take on new roles and responsibilities. If you're interested in joining us please visit our 'CONTACT' tab and check out who we are on the ever-growing 'TEAM' page. Keep your eyes peeled for upcoming information about our first session!
Happy MLK Day!
