Hello, rookie teams! Now that you’ve had your planning week, it's time to get started!
Build team should have prototypes and experimenting done by the end of this week so that you could incorporate these ideas into your current strategy. Remember to also collaborate and share your ideas with the build and driver team so that you can stay on the same page. Your team should use communication applications to voice all the problems that occur with your robot and any important information regarding your robot.
Some communication apps we recommend are FlowDock, Slack, Discord, or Teams. If you are not able to connect your team social media chats are also an option. They are not as organized but it is communication nonetheless.
Meanwhile, the admin team should continue to reach out to sponsors by contacting local businesses, union groups and large companies.
In every FRC season, there are many unpredictable events that can occur. Your team should be able to improvise and adapt to these changes to meet the deadlines.
Happy reading, good luck rookies, and may the force be with you all!
Our team divided into groups to brainstorm a variety of ideas to advance with the best possible designs. Our programmers started creating and testing some code on practice bots to familiarize themselves with the challenge. Meanwhile, our admin team continued to reach out to sponsors by contacting local businesses, union groups and large companies. They have also started preparing for our regional competition, such as gathering materials for the pit and working on award applications.
We are quite satisfied with our progress as of now and we hope the same for your teams. If you have any questions, feel free to ask us on our website (Contact) or visit the most popular forum used by the FIRST community: https://www.chiefdelphi.com/
Thanks for reading, rookies, and happy building!
