The 2017 FRC season has begun! Friarbots members arrived early Saturday morning for breakfast before joining 30 Orange County FRC teams in the Servite Theater to watch the live game reveal and check out a practice field in Robodome. Afterward, Friarbots members thoroughly read through the rule book and split into groups to find schemes and strategies to present to the rest of the team which were then funneled into a list of requirements for the robot.

The Friarbots held mock kickoff event earlier this week to prepare for the 2017 FRC season. Students watched a previous game animation, played several rounds of human robots, split into groups to find strategies, drew up concept robots and were even quizzed on the rule book.

This year has been full of new experiences for the Friarbots, and last Sunday, Team 3309 was able to finally achieve one of its longest-standing STEM goals: promoting FIRST on TV!

In October, Matthew Krager, Jon Logrippo, and Matt Masamori were invited to be featured on Business Rockstars, an online, radio, and TV network focused on connecting everyday people with business entrepreneurs and CEOs from around the nation.

We want to thank Business Rockstars so much for this amazing opportunity to both promote STEM Education and Team 3309 on your show! 

You can watch Jon and Matts interview with Pat OBrien on our YouTube Channel, the KDOC News Network on Sunday nights, or listen to it on iHeart Radios Business Rockstar Podcast!

History was made this past weekend.  We had an Alumni RoboMom reunion with representatives going all the way back to the team founders.  They toured our robotics facility, now in the middle of Servite campus, and were very impressed.  They concluded with boisterous socializing and breakfast at Mimis Cafe.  It was great to see all of you again and we look forward to welcoming your sons back from college.

This weekend, students had fun learning to run the CNC Mill.  They did a great job machining a brass bar to use as a welding aid.
