Event Details

Workshop Series

The Build It!, Drive It! and Program It! workshops are a three-part series to help teams jump start their robot design, build, and programming, as well as providing practice time on the field. Again this season, veteran teams Freire Charter School 5488 Robodragons and Central High School 5320 RoboLancers Gold and 6676 RoboLancers Crimson are joining forces to host and run these events. Mentors and lead students from these schools will work directly with teams to help them prepare for their first Meet or Tournament.

Build It! will be focused on initial robot building and introduction to the new programming environment.
Program It! will be focused on programming but have plenty of opportunities to continue building and testing your robots.
Drive It! will continue the build/programming/driving fun with a focus on incremental robot improvements and plenty of field practice.
