Monthly Meeting September 8, 2014 - Future of Tomorrow (Robotics)

The public is invited to the September 8th 6PM meeting of the Mountain Computer User Group (MCUG). We will have a special presentation by the Towns County High School FTC Robotics team. They will explain what a robot is, how robots are useful and the types of jobs for which robots are especially well suited and being used currently. They will also give a demonstration of running the competition robot and their Demonstration robot, to accoumplish different challenges.

The Robotics team has nine members and last year was the team's "rookie year". The team worked on robotics four days a week after school from 3:00 to 6:00 from October through February. They attended two regular competitions and won the Judges' Award at one and the Motivate/Aspire Award at the other. They were one of only 18 teams from Georgia, Tennessee, and Alabama selected for the Georgia FTC Invitational Tournament at the Georgia World Congress Center last spring. They won second place in programming at that competition.

At the conclusion of the program we will open the floor to questions on robotics or any other technology questions. The meeting is open to the public and everyone is welcome to attend.
