2012 C.O.R.E. Picnic

The C.O.R.E. summer picnic was a hit! On August 18th, team members and their families gathered at Minooka Park for lunch and an afternoon of games and fun. After lunch, quite a few of us joined in a huge volleyball game, while the rest of us ate more food (of which there was plenty!). We welcomed rookie members and introduced them to the C.O.R.E. way of life. On our team, when we are not building great robots, we like to have fun. Whether we are building robots or not, most of us drink Mountain Dew (Throwback is the best!). We do not know the exact number, but quite a bit of this tasty drink was consumed in a short amount of time! All in all, C.O.R.E. had a great time at the picnic.

Wisconsin State Fair 2012

We presented at the 2012 Wisconsin State Fair August 6-8. On the first 2 days of the 1st Annual State Fair Robotics Rally, we provided volunteers to help at the tournament. In fact, some of our team members were chosen to be on the challenge design team for the LEGO Robotics Competition part of the competition. We showed off our robot and answered questions about FIRST Robotics on the 3rd, and last day, of the Robotics Rally. We also gave a presentation about FIRST Robotics that uncovered curiosity about the program from all parts of the state.
