As high school students we get to work alongside many adult mentors with a broad range of skills. These include; programming, building, fund development, travel arrangements, and communication. During the build season of the competition, January 4th-February 18th , we put everything we have learned into designing the new robot. Our mentors, teachers, and coaches are part of our strategy meetings, robot design and build. Together, we learn to use sophisticated hardware and software i.e. 3D Printer, CAD.
