Re: FIRST Team 1114: 2012 Chairman's Video

My favorite part was the listing of how many other FIRST teams 1114's helped. Definitely illustrates commitment in a fantastic manner.

Re: FIRST Team 1114: 2012 Chairman's Video

Amazing video from an awesome team I think my favorite part about FIRST adding the video criteria is that we finally get to see what impressive programs/ideas many of the great RCA teams have put together. I've always liked 1114's Big Simbot/Litttle Simbot program, but this really makes me love the program Every team should take a look to see if there is something similar they can implement, as its one thing for students to be able to work alongside mentors, its a whole different level when there is an individual mentor looking out for you, and is your friend.

1114 - congrats on an impressive 10th season

Edit: Something a comment made me realize... many teams will look at this and say they don't have the mentor resources to implement this, but another idea would be to have your limited mentors be "bigs" to a set of leadership students, and then have the leadership students be "bigs" to the rest of your students. Its certainly not exactly the same learning, but may have the added benefit of really growing the student leaders, if you have a limited set of mentors.

Re: FIRST Team 1114: 2012 Chairman's Video

I know who I'm rooting for to win the 2012 CCA. Bring it home for Canada and the 4-digit teams 1114!

Recognition on that stage can only serve to make the Simbotics Effect stronger.

Re: FIRST Team 1114: 2012 Chairman's Video

Incredible video!
incredible students!
incredible mentors!
incredible robots!
incredible team!
Simbots are INCREDIBLE!!

Is it just me or does it seem like regional CA winners each year just get more and more amazing. I would hate to be the CCA judges, they have a really difficult job ahead of them. While I am rooting for 1114 this year, I almost feel there really needs to be 3 CCA given away each year. Think about it... there are more and more regionals each year and thus more CA winners, why not let there be more CCA's given out. The achievements of some of these CA winners are amazing, and they may have to chase the CCA for 3-5 years.

The thing about awarding more than one is the overall Chairman's aspect seems to become watered down to a certain amount of work that needs to be done to obtain the honor. I have to disagree with your statement only because there is always a team, like 1114, that will truly go above and beyond the "standard" for a Chairmans Award winner.

Re: FIRST Team 1114: 2012 Chairman's Video

Thanks to everyone who has commented on our video. The amount of time that went into this production was immense. Our students essentially locked themselves in a "cave" and were putting in 14 hour days towards the end while working on this video. It was an entire team effort, and we're just as proud of it as we are of Simbot Jordan.

Re: FIRST Team 1114: 2012 Chairman's Video

My first FIRST experience, 2005 IRI, I was approached by Karthik - he said they were starting a new event in Toronto the next year, and he would be honored if our team would consider participating.
At the time, I didn't know this guy from Adam; I also didn't know with which team he was associated.

This video, to me, perfectly captures the delicate balance of on- and off-field impact with the humility of the team and its members. 2012 is all about balance; 1114 reflects that.

It was such an amazing video! I wish I could know the video editing software, if I can.
