Coach Harald wins Compass Award at PA States

Igutech FTC attended the annual FTC PA State Championship on Saturday Feb 25, 2017. Although our robot Falcon is a preformance machine, luck was not on our side and we preformed poorly in the rankings. We also nominated our mentor, Coach Harald, for the compass award because he's an inspirational mentor!

Above is the video which the team created in complete secrecy and which won first place. Coach harald didn't know he was nominated untill the video played!

Thanks for the amazing season PA FTC, Sponsors, mentors, and parents!

This season was truly special and challenging! From wrangling the new software system to developing a cane-shooting-pullup-robot-which-weights-39-pounds this season had it all! We're all excited for next year's challenge and we can't wait to see what it's going to be! Although the igutech season is over, the FTC season isn't! Several team members are planning on voulnteering at the East Superregionals and Tilman's going to be attending World's as a Dean's list finalist.

Thanks for the wonderful season,

-Team Igutech, 6964

B.Braun Visit

[HG 4-21-10] On April 16logo_BBraun, 2010 we visited B.Braun Medical in Allentown, PA to learn about medical device manufacturing. TeamMeeting_100416-03aWe started out with a video about the company history, while we were treated to snacks and sodas. Then, engineers from R&D, Design and Production explained B.Braun's products. They introduces us to he fascinating world of infusion systems and drug delivery. Highlights were hands-on demonstrations of needle free IV valves (with fake blood!) and the illustration of 3D computer-aided design process.  Then, everyone had their turn to play with an industrial robot in one of B. Braun's R&D Labs. Their robot was clearly bigger and much 'fancier' then our LEGO robots, but the engineers explained that it used pretty much the same building blocks: motors with rotation sensors, various otther ensors, step-by-step programs, .... Another highlight was the window tour through production were we could see hundreds of large industrial robots making millions of little plastic pieces each day. Thanks so much again to our host Mr. Selk and his team of experts who stayed late on a Friday to give us a first-class tour and patiently answered our lots and lots of questions. We were very impressed and we would certainly like to come back one day.
