Team 6239 volunteered 25 students, mentors and parents for the @FTCTeams PG County Qualifier at Parkdale High School - it was an amazingly valuable experience. We were assigned as judges, Dean's List Interviewers, Referees, Queuers - it was so enlightening. It gave us incredible insight into the tremendous amount of work that it takes to run a tournament #Team6239 #gotpi #omgrobots #FIRST #IrrationalEng #BowieStateUniversity #firstrobotics #destinationdeepspace, #FRC4949

We are learning how to do CAD (Computed Aided Design) using Solidworks software. One of our nearby sister FRC teams, Team 4949, The Parkdale High School Robopanther's Head Coach, Karen Bogoski, became a Solidworks instructor course this summer and has graciously agreed to be our instructor. We have been sponsored by Solidworks and plan to produce parts for our robot designed by our students and 3D printed at the Team 4949 Maker Space.
The Irrational Engineers visited The Robo Panthers to discuss and plan some important events coming up. Team 4949, Team 6239, and a few other teams will be working together to present at the 2017 DC Auto Show. We are extremely excited for the opportunity to meet other students who participate in robotics and enjoy it as much as we do!
The Irrational Engineers is a FIRST FRC robotics team dedicated to teaching highschool students about Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics while still having Fun.
