To the Friends and Supporters of Team 341
Thank you for all of your help putting together Ramp Riot 2003, which is now one of the largest and best-attended robotics competitions on the East Coast. For the 4th year in a row we have pulled off a flawless event with many positive outcomes. A special note of thanks goes out to Rohm & Haas, NASA, BAE Systems, FIRST®, Drexel University, Y-100 and our partners the North Montco Technical Career Center.
Here are just a few of the results:
- 26 Teams representing about 800 students came to the Wissahickon Circle Gym to battle it out in the arena, dance on the sidelines, and contribute to charity.
- Hundreds more school-age kids from the surrounding area came to watch our event and get excited about Math, Science, and Technology.
- 1,200 food cans were collected and delivered to the Ambler Community Cupboard while the competition was still in progress.
- Teams also contributed used sporting goods equipment for Second Bounce, a student charity project.
- Event spectators were thrilled by Segway Human Transport demonstrations.
- Y-100 gave away prizes for 2 hours.
- The team announced the winner of an Apple i-Pod. The winning ticket was held by a patron of the NBC-10 Tech Expo which we attended the previous week.
- Team 341 also won an award as the 2003 Ramp Riot Finalist.
In all respects it was a great day for the students, schools, sponsors, and the community!! Thank you to everyone that participated. We couldn’t do this without you.
