If you read our blog, you would know that on March 3rd, we had freshmen visit the PLTW: Pathway of Engineering, which is what most of our team members are in. These 3 fellas, and many more not photographed, helped explain how taking engineering courses have helped with their FRC experience, while also encouraging them to sign up for the team next year!
