Tips for Rookie Teams- Week 6
With the competition dates almost here, your robot should be very close to completion for your regional or district event. Your team should start to prepare for your competition in all respects.
For the programming members, you should be nearing the completion of your program and you should be able to control your robot both autonomously and with user control. A good idea would be to set up a practice field and test your code to avoid errors during the regional or district events.
Build team, your robot should be completed with your electrical wiring and the frame finished. With the programming team, both sub-teams should start looking for potential drivers and train them to control the robot. If you already have a skilled driver ready to control the robot, you can still practice running your robot through drills to further develop your skills to maximize your points during the game.
The administrative team should start preparing any required files or documents for the awards judges. In addition, if your team is preparing for any awards, make sure that you start to practice to ensure that your team does it’s best. Lastly, be sure to discuss what the activity at the pits will be so that members take turns at the pits, ready to present to the awards judges.
Hopefully, your team is almost prepared with your competition, we wish all teams good luck with the Infinite Recharge season this year.
