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

Igutech Fieldtrip to Atmos Inc.

Wegmans-logo [JS 10-09-11]  Last WeWegmans_111005-09dnesday, we had a very interesting fieldtrip to the Wegmans grocery store in Allentown. Mr. Daniel Len, Food and Human Safety Coordinator, gave us a tour through different departments of his store and explained us all about food safety. We learned about how they keep their food fresh, where the food comes from and how to keep potential bacteria from going from food to food, preventing cross contamination. One way is to keep ready-to-eat food separate from food that needs to be cooked before eating. Dan uses a laser thermometer to test food containers, food surfaces, and even the bathroom water temperature. The laser checks the temperature to make sure all of the food has the right amount of refrigeration or heating (for the food bar). That was just one of the many ways Dan can help out his company. He is responsible for teaching and training all the employees of the store from truck drivers to managers. He also discussed the importance of personal hygiene like proper hand washing. Thanks again to Dan at Wegmans for sharing his knowledge and for staying late on a workday to answer the many questions our team had regarding food safety at a grocery store.
