Sunday, March 27th, marked the kickoff of our robotics centric German Exchange. Six German students arrived that evening to join our team for a little less than a month. They will be attending the Smoky Mountains Regional with us and taking on a small robotics challenge. At the end up May, 8 RoHAWKtics team members will b travelling to Germany to assist in setting up one of the first FRIST Robotics team in the country.

During their stay in Knoxville, they will be working alongside our team in the Manufacturing Demonstration Facility. They will also be going on a tour of the Oak Ridge National Laboratories. Students are appearing on various news outlets such as local WBIR new station and 98.7 Radio station.
