DE Marietta Scrimamge

On Saturday, February 18th, Walton Robotics hosted eight teams from across Georgia on the Marietta DE 2017 FRC Steamworks competition field. The teams experienced a safety briefing, lunch, and of course ROBOTS! We had some teams who could climb and others that could get across the field really fast. It was a wonderful day full of information sharing, teamwork, and all around fun!

Marietta DE open Thursday!

The Marietta DE field is almost complete! Thanks to generous sponsorship from GeorgiaFIRST and over 600 hours of student and parent work, we have our first open field this Thursday, 2/9 from 6:30 to 9:30 pm. 

DE Marietta has a full field with a steel airship, boilers, and loading stations for your use.

The first five teams to respond back will be able to participate in this open field event. Good luck to all teams and remember practice makes perfect.

Please remember to bring your own safety glasses for everyone who attends a DE event! Closed toe shoes are also required.

We look forward to seeing teams moving on the field!

Thanks for your hard work!
