TechBrick Events and Happenings for 2013-14

The First Frisbee First Pitch in the History of US FIRST at the Aberdeen IronBirds Game, July 31, 2013.

On July, 31, 2013, Techbrick Robotics and their World Championship FRC 3941 Robot, KELVIN, shot out the first pitches at the Aberdeen Ironbirds' game (http://www.milb.com/index.jsp?sid=t488) at Ripken Stadium in Aberdeen, MD (http://www.ripkenstadium.com). We calibrated the shooter to fire exactly 45 feet from in front of the mound to the catcher. As far as we know it's the first Frisbee first-pitch in US FIRST history. If you have a local MLB farm team near you ask them if you can do the same. It's great fun and a great outreach to the community.  The team spent most the game working on Python programming in the stands and protecting our laptop from fly balls.

Lots of Pictures!
