School is back in Session

We're already into our third week of classes and the team is beginning our fall activities.

We kicked off the year with a parents meeting to get them up to speed on what happened during the summer and how the fall semester was going to work. This is the first year that our two schools will be together as a single team during the fall.

We had our orientation meeting last week for perspective members and had a really great turn out (34 interested students). A large number have already registered for the team. It's going to be a very exciting year.

Today we hit the ground running with an introduction to the engineering design process (presentation) and also we did an overview of the VEX Sack Attack rules.

Tomorrow we will begin our strategy discussion for Stack Attack.

The first VEX Sack Attack matches in Houston will be played in the Strake Jesuit Dining Hall on Oct 6th. The new league play model is going to be very interesting.
