This website was created entirely by members of the Igutechs - a team of 9 to 14 year olds (plus our mentors). We love to get together, explore things, build cool robots and work on our 'Igutech Communicator', a product that could revolutionize the ways seniors can communicate with distant relavites.
We are registered as team #5 in the FIRST Lego League to compete with more than twenty thousand other teams worldwide. Please check out the offical FIRST website if you would like to learn more about the FIRST organization.
We use this website mostly among ourselves to share pictures, to show progress with our robot missions and to discuss our research activities. Most of this website can only be accessed by team members, however, everyone is welcome to browse our public pages. Please use the form posted in "contact us" to get in touch with our team coach. We look forward to hearing from you.
Thank you! The Igutechs

B.Braun Visit

[HG 4-21-10] On April 16logo_BBraun, 2010 we visited B.Braun Medical in Allentown, PA to learn about medical device manufacturing. TeamMeeting_100416-03aWe started out with a video about the company history, while we were treated to snacks and sodas. Then, engineers from R&D, Design and Production explained B.Braun's products. They introduces us to he fascinating world of infusion systems and drug delivery. Highlights were hands-on demonstrations of needle free IV valves (with fake blood!) and the illustration of 3D computer-aided design process.  Then, everyone had their turn to play with an industrial robot in one of B. Braun's R&D Labs. Their robot was clearly bigger and much 'fancier' then our LEGO robots, but the engineers explained that it used pretty much the same building blocks: motors with rotation sensors, various otther ensors, step-by-step programs, .... Another highlight was the window tour through production were we could see hundreds of large industrial robots making millions of little plastic pieces each day. Thanks so much again to our host Mr. Selk and his team of experts who stayed late on a Friday to give us a first-class tour and patiently answered our lots and lots of questions. We were very impressed and we would certainly like to come back one day.
