Helpful Tips


  • Test all components, don’t just check that they are present  (we found out the last week that we had a motor that was probably broken from the beginning)
  • Always check for software updates.
  • Be sure to leave plenty of time for programming and move quickly from the start.
  • Get a machine shop to sponsor the team.
  • Don’t forget to apply for awards.
  • When testing your robot, don’t put the wireless router really close to a plug strip or transformer;  it might cause a lot of interference.  In my case, it didn’t work at all and it took a while to figure out what the problem was.  There is also a lot of interference in garages.
  • HAVE FUN!!
