I was just wondering, has anyone on BYOND competed/competes in the annual FIRST robotics competition?
For those who don't know, it's a high school-centered robotics competition where students work together to make a robot based on a years game. (The games change every year, and some are actually pretty if you think hard enough.)
If your school has a high-tech/engineering program, you might look into FIRST. Usually a corporate sponsor (Motorola, Apple, Brother, and Office Depot sponsor my school) sponsors a high school, and from there the kids work their creativity. I've been in the club for three years, but this year is technically my first year 'actually' on the team. (The Software team is pretty underrated, considering you really only need one coder, and my school has a severe lack of programming-enthusiasts anyway.)
Anyway, if you do involve yourself in FIRST, post hither!
