Robots come FIRST® at Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade®

from IAEM

For nearly a century, Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parads has been the official kick-off to the holiday season. This year, jumping to the lead of the parade will be five award-winning FIRST® Robotics Competition teams. IAEM-USA encourages members to watch the parade and cheer the FIRST® LEGO League teams. IAEM-USA is a proud sponsor of FIRST® LEGO® League 2013 Nature's Fury Challenge. At the beginning of each competition season, teams receive a "Kit of Parts" made up of motors, batteries, a control system, a PC and a mix of automation components — with no instructions. Working with adult mentors, students have six weeks to design, build, program and test their robots to meet the season's engineering challenge. While students are actively working on this year's Nature's Fury Challenge, the robots leading the parade were designed successfully for last season's challenge. We applaud the students' efforts and encourage IAEM members to be mentors and answer requests from students when called upon during this year's competition season. The 87th Annual Macy's Thanksgiving Parade will be aired live from New York City on Nov. 28, 2013, beginning at 9 a.m. Eastern on NBC. more
