Start of the Year

We have started a few projects and recruited new team members for this year.

SAA's Club Carnival is next week, as well as Strake Jesuit's Club Fair. We will be at both events.

We are also holding interest meetings at SAA (since we don't meet at SAA anymore) and bringing in Amanda Reineck, an engineer from Exxon, to do a presentation on her career and what it's like to be an engineer. This will happen after school on Sep. 24.


This fall, we will be running an internal competition among subgroups on the team using the VEX IQ system. This will start on Sep. 22 when we go over the game and divide up into teams.

The Remix, October 24

This is our last off-season event of the 2015 season. It will take place in The Woodlands and is hosted by our friends Texas Torque and CRyptonite.

All students, parents, supporters, etc. are invited to attend this event. It's a fun event and a good introduction to FRC for our new students.

Signups will be sent out in the next few weeks.

Mock Kickoff, October 31

We will be hosting the 2015 FRC Mock Kickoff on Oct. 31 in the Strake Dining Hall. It's a event designed to give students an introduction to the FRC season and engineering design process.

Here is the full description of the event, its RSVP link, and some of its workshop descriptions.

All spectrum team members should plan on attending this event. It will end before 4 P.M. so people can enjoy their Halloween evening.

Spectrum FLL Qualifier, December 5

We are hosting our second annual FLL Qualifier. The event will host 24 teams of 4th-8th grade students competing with Lego robots.

The event is from 7 A.M. - 4 P.M., and we would love if you could volunteer. We need students, parents, teachers, and more to volunteer as referees, judges, concessions help, and more. We will provide training for any job that you would like to help with. We need a few key volunteers to help coordinate the event and get things prepared. If you would like to help with that, please let us know.

VOLUNTEER REGISTRATION (Please volunteer if you can!)
