Guests from the Robo Raiders FTC 7129 of the St. Clair County Christian Homeschool Educators in Mascoutah, Illinois, join us today to talk about their experiences in robotics. This team won the Inspire Award, the highest possible, at the FIRST Tech Challenge North Super-Regional Competition in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, and qualified for the 2017 World Championship. The students talk about why they joined the team and why using science, technology, engineering, and math skills to build and program the robot is so important and exciting for them. Learn more about the team and their work at roboraiders.net, facebook.com/roboraidersftc7129/, and youtube.com/roboraidersftc7129.
