Hydro Dynamics Season!

We anticipate a significant increase in the number of registered teams this year due to a large number of inquiries, workshop attendance and increased interest from teachers in Santa Rosa and Bay Counties. We hope to add at least one more QT! Be ready for the Hydro Dynamics Challenge release on August 29th!

What can you and your team do until then? Any one or all of these suggestions:

  • EV3 Skills training (
