The Miracle Workerz participated in the Mid-Atlantic Regional District Event at Hatboro-Horsham High School over the weekend of February 29, 2020. At the end of the qualifying matches, the team was ranked first seed and invited Peddie Robotics and Miss Daisy to be their alliance partners. Losing only one match during the elimination matches, MOEllennium Falcon finished strong as the alliance won the event.
In addition, the Miracle Workerz continued the tradition of handing out their own awards in the pits on the morning of Day 2. The Media team in conjunction with Joe Perrotto and Brian West designed unique medallions and a creative mechanical student created the display. The awards were presented to the winning teams along with a MOE cheer.
On Saturday February 22, 2020, the Miracle Workerz participated in an annual event, “Engineering Your Tomorrow” at Conrad School of Science in Wilmington, DE. The Miracle Workerz have participated in this event for close to 20 years and have enjoyed being a part of encouraging more young girls to go into STEM careers. This year, our safety mentor, Berlin Stokes was also an organizer for the event and her son, Randy, who is a MOE student volunteered for the event. The team brought CaMOElot so that the students could see first hand the work that our team does. The Miracle Workerz continue to provide outreach opportunities to spread the word of FIRST. GO MOE!
On Saturday, January 25th, the team had a great time participating in STEMtastic Weekends at the Hagley Museum! We had a demonstration featuring our robots, including CaMOElot. Visitors had the opportunity to get hands-on experience with the robots, see the robots in action, and draw their own robots. We also debuted our updated coloring books, which promote engineering to children in the form of fun activities.
The Red Clay School District Superintendent, Mr. Dorrell Green, took time out of his busy schedule to stop by and visit the team’s demonstration.
Thank you to Hagley Museum and to everyone who came by to see our demonstration.
Duel On The Delaware took place on October 19th, 2019. Here are the highlights from the event:
The Duel On The Delaware Snapchat filter was viewed over 1,500 times! We also had an all new competition team, and our team was the first pick of the #3 alliance.
Miss Delaware (Hillary May) was present, announced a match, and presented the book drive awards. We had a successful book drive, participation from 30 teams from five states, and 110+ volunteers! Additionally, we had five teams participate in the mock chairman’s award – a record amount! Congratulations to the Duel Master Volunteer Winner – Kevin McKay!
Last, but not least, one highlight from this event was the Woodie Flowers tribute. Rest In Peace, Woodie!
Thank you to everyone who helped make Duel on the Delaware a success!
The duel on Delaware was an off season fall event where most new and old MOE members participated in. MOE was the host of the event along with our sister group team 316 “LunaTECHS”. It was a long busy day from the practice rounds all the way through the qualifying rounds. Although it was a packed day, the energy never faded in all teams. There were several dance breaks and friendly bonding with fellow teams. MOE 365 was praised for our high spirits though we had a lot on our shoulders. In the end we reached the finals and were able to place in 5th, go MOE!
Ken Chisholm, a broadcaster from Radio Newark, came to visit MOE’s Lab last week. With Radio Newark being a STEM based broadcasting station, he came in to find out more about MOE and FIRST and to even do future podcasts with us!
