Dribbler 2017

Miami Heat NBA Dribble Challenge

Miami Heat STEM Robotics Day

Teachers and students in Miami-Dade County Public Schools were able to attend the Miami Heat STEAM Day event on November 9, 2017. This annual event allowed students to become designers and engineers as they work in teams to create a dribbling machine to compete.

 

This is the second year of this event and RamTech expanded upon their abilities from the year before. This year the dribbler was improved by giving it the ability to move while dribbling. RamTech also reused their FRC Stronghold robot and brought it to the event this year. Even though they didn't place this year, it was still a great performance.

RamTech Throws Out First Pitch at Marlins Game

The Coral Park RamTech engineering team was at it again. They improved the catapult from last year to throw out the first pitch at Wednesday's Astros-Marlins game, and it was as accurate and consistent as it could be. The pitch, which was a strike, was once again on target as expected.

 

The catapult design won the competition among schools in the area for the second year in a row. We are looking forward to next year to continue to share the same success.

RamTech Throws Out First Pitch at Marlins Game

There have been a wide array of unique first pitches over the years. We've seen some terrible throws from the likes of 50 Cent, and an adorable one from Derrick Rose's 3-year-old son. But rarely do we see a contraption like this throw a baseball to open a game.

 

The Coral Park RamTech engineering team built a catapult to throw out the first pitch at Tuesday's Rays-Marlins game, and it fired some heat. The pitch, which was a strike, knocked over the Marlins mascot, who was acting as the catcher.

 

The catapult design won a competition among schools in the area. It wasn't an easy contraption to design, either. The catapult kept breaking with every attempt, making it extremely difficult to master.
