Design It! Pittsburgh

The Design It!, Build It!, Program It!, and Drive It! are a series of teams-helping-teams workshops to help teams jump start their robot design, build, and programming, as well as providing practice time on the field. Coaches, mentors, lead students, and volunteers will work directly with teams to help them prepare for their first scrimmage or Tournament. 
  • Design It! is focused on game strategy and robot design, with initial robot building.
  • Build It! continues the robot build process with help for initial programming.
  • Program It! is focused on programming in Java/Android Studio and FTC App Inventor. Bring a laptop that either is or can be set up for one of the development environments.
  • Drive It! provides the opportunity to test and tweak your robot on a full competition field. Practice with and against other teams.
Share your expertise with other teams! Contact ftc.events@pennfirst.org if you would like to present/lead/support a topic area at any these workshops. Non-robot/programming topic areas are also welcomed, including engineering notebook, judging, fund raising, outreach, etc.

Be sure to bring your robot parts, tools and laptops to all workshops.
