Filming and Building

filmingThe FTC season is well underway here in Florida. Results from the last two qualifying competitions are online at the Florida FIRST Tech Challenge website and it looks like we’ve got our work cut out for us!  This year, Florida is trying out the use of Team Videos instead of Team Interviews the day of a competition. This adds a new element to the competition experience, hopefully freeing up judges to watch teams in action rather than just getting a five or ten minute glimpse of teams in a formal interview setting.

That also creates one more thing for teams to do during their build season, in addition to building their robot and maintaining their delicate-touchEngineering Notebook.  But everyone’s sure busy at meetings!

At our last meeting, we worked on further refining our build, which made for some good team video opportunities.  Hopefully we can get down to some serious programming and game strategy at this week’s meeting.  So much to do, and so little time before our December 4 competition at Middleton High School!
