  • What's New

    FIRST Tech Challenge

    Military Magnet Academy hosted the FIRST Tech Challenge, Lowcountry-Pee Dee Inter-League Tournament, on Saturday, January 25th, 2020. The FTC tournament was a successful event and our Robotics team had the opportunity to not only have fun but also learn and show others how much they already know. There were a total of 15 teams and 66 registered volunteers that participated in Saturday’s event. We had a large turnout of spectators and VIPs who attended. 

    The RoboEagles did an outstanding job. They spent a significant number of hours designing, building and programming their Robot while learning what it takes to be part of a team. The team overcame several obstacles, such as programming, designing, and building issues. The team displayed FIRST’s core value 'Gracious Professionalism' and will continue to take this transferable skill into the industry. They were judged before competing, which gives them the opportunity to win awards outside of winning the competition. FIRST Tech Challenge judging sessions do not include written or verbal feedback for students. The judging is a subjective process and students are encouraged to learn the important life skill of self-evaluation. This helps students prepare for professional interviews while developing other real-world life skills. The RoboEagles won the following awards and has earned a spot in the State Competition that will be held in Gaffney SC, Saturday, February 15, 2020:

    2nd Place Connect Award - A team must submit an engineering notebook. The engineering notebook must include a Team plan that covers the Team’s goals and plans for the season, which could include robot game strategies, outreach to science, engineering, and math communities, and Team finances.

    2nd Place Design Award - A team must submit an engineering notebook that includes Robot CAD images or detailed Robot design drawings.
