Weekly blog post update 1/9

Hello Blue Twilight!

 

1/5 — Full Team Meeting

This Thursday, we had a brief Full Team Meeting to go over the general plan for the build season.

 

1/5 — 10th Anniversary Party

Team 2220 had a wonderful 10th Anniversary celebration! A big thank you to all the volunteers that helped the event run smoothly as well as all that attended.

 

1/7 — FRC Kickoff

This Saturday was the official FRC kickoff for the season. Many of our students attended the formal kickoff held at the University of Minnesota as well as volunteered to hand out the kit of parts to attending teams. Other team members stayed back at the school to watch the livestream and start brainstorming right away. After team pictures and lunch, we kicked off our team strategy process by doing some game analysis and brainstorming possible robot roles. It is highly encouraged that students read through the game manual at least once so that they can better understand the rules and more effectively participate in strategy discussion.

 

1/8 — Strategy Meeting: Scoring Analysis

Team members met to continue strategizing, this time focusing on how many points each individual strategy will theoretically earn and how complex each one would be.
