On November 23, 2013, Team RPG visited Tullahoma High school with another FTC team to display Excalibur to Tullahoma FLL teams.
The day started with all of the team except Jukto and Aminus meeting at the high school in a biology classroom. The team was paired with the local FTC team, and they proceed to look at each other’s robots.
When the team went into the gym, where they were going to display the robot. The Tullahoma team and Team RPG both set up their robot, and Coach Foo talked a little bit about how FTC is different than FLL.
When Coach Foo was finished explaining that, both teams said their names, Team RPG saying both their real and role-playing names, and the teams started to display their robots.
As the robots picked up blocks, put them in buckets, and interacted with each other, Nocturna explained a bit about how FTC programming works as opposed to FLL programming. In short, while FLL programming is simply drag-and-drop tasks, FTC programming is more professional, as you have to manually type everything.
The FLL teams were all in awe of the two team’s robots, and they seemed to love the presentation. Thanks to Tullahoma High school for allowing us to demonstrate!
