Starting November 27th, Dragon Robotics members began constructing a Christmas parade float. Throughout the five day period, teammates spent hours after school building, decorating, and programming the many complex portions of the Christmas spectacle. On December 1st, FRC, FTC, and VEX members from multiple grade levels came together for the “Santa’s Robot Workshop” Float in Collierville’s annual Christmas Parade. The float was embellished with garnish, festive colors, and dangling elves and featured six VEX Robots that were programmed to autonomously oscillate their clawed arms. In the center of the trailer was a gargantuan, silver bot that waved to the crowd alongside the VEX clawbots. FRC seniors Sebastian Mobo, Bri Barrentine, Justin Blankenship, Matthew Umsted, Ethan Webb, and Landon Johnson sat beside our bionic friends and greeted the crowd dressed as Santa's elves. Impressed with the appeal of “Santa’s Robot Workshop” , the judges awarded our float 3rd place, the Chairman's Award.
