Go to Post I think a lifetime of learning properly and then teaching others and inspiring the youth is more important to myself at least than being on the news for a couple seconds during a voice over. - Elgin Clock [more]

Go to Post Mentoring is HARD. Akash Rastogi Carolyn_Grace
Go to Post Winning is important. Learning is important. Inspiring students is important. Teaching Students is important. Figuring out how to do all of these at the same time, in my opinion, is the meaning of FIRST. Justin Montois Anupam Goli
Go to Post Just a note, there are 2,534 teams registered and competing in FRC this year. That means that there are 2,533 teams being run in a manner entirely different than your own. Jay Trzaskos EricH
Go to Post Being inspired is a lot like learning, not everybody does it the same way. Jay Trzaskos Carolyn_Grace
Go to Post Inspiration and recognition does not equal "advanced shop class". What's better for your team is not better for all teams. Remember that. DonRotolo Hallry
Go to Post Exactly matching weight at two different regionals is an indicator of something fishy. :p Alan Anderson JohnBoucher
Go to Post This is a benefit of the district model. It brings the events back into the schools. ezygmont708 PVCpirate
Go to Post I pumped my fist to cheer - but since I was a ref at the time it looked like I signaled a red foul... Tom Ore CalTran
Go to Post If you thought two alliances racing to tip the bridge in auto was exciting, wait until they play autonomous chicken on the center line. :D Alpha Beta Kims Robot
Go to Post ...these guys have taken it to a new level. (I want to be part of a team like that.) Tetraman Nate Laverdure
Go to Post Point is, there is no definite answer. This is FIRST, Whatever works well with your team is the best. NelsonMichael Nuttyman54
Go to Post I realize that I've been drawn into the trap of thinking that this is about robots and scores and winning. Reboot. Remember why we do what we do. Mr. Van Mr. Pockets
Go to Post This isn't an engineering fair and demonstration, it's FRC. Defense is part of the game. You can't expect a good FRC team to just sit there and get clobbered by a full-court shooter; they're going to engineer a solution to the problem. Kevin Sevcik nightpool
Go to Post The FIRST community will always step up in times of need. nikeairmancurry Hallry
Go to Post We learned that no matter the outcome when you don't give up you will always win. Koko Ed Hallry
Go to Post Chairman's Award is not about building the robot. Every team builds a robot. Retired Starman stinglikeabee
Go to Post If you're doing it to win, you're doing it wrong. Teams who truly understand why they are doing what they do will win Chairman's simply as a result, an added benefit. The award isn't the goal. It's the impact you create, and the results you see. dcarr Hallry
Go to Post Remember that the reason that you do something should NEVER be for the sole purpose of winning an award. To paraphrase something said by one of the Hall of Fame teams: "You should choose to do something because it is fun and the right thing to do." tim-tim Hallry
Go to Post Yes, in human nature we like to get rewarded/recognized for things we do; however, you should not have to rely on this to be "successful". Remember the purpose of FIRST - To change our culture. tim-tim Hallry
Go to Post We have seen the difference in people's lives on our team as they went through the program. There are all sorts of examples, and I am sure you (and everybody other team) have similar stories. At the end of the day, that is really all that matters; changing lives in a positive manner. tim-tim Hallry
Go to Post Creatively solving problems is part of the fun. Continuous improvement and sustainment of [old] programs is also important. tim-tim Hallry
Go to Post Not every team can start 200 teams in Canada or Hawaii because they are located in relatively dense region of teams already. This doesn't mean they can't impact their local and surrounding areas. This is where you have to be creative. tim-tim Hallry
Go to Post I am a firm believer that there is no model that can be transplanted/copied from one team to another and have the same level of success. There just isn't a formula for it. The mindset you should have is: "I know I have made a positive impact on my community". tim-tim Hallry
Go to Post We were asked to help change a culture. If the solution was simple FIRST would have given more specific guidelines on how to do this. It is our job as teams to find unique and creative ways to help fulfill the request from FIRST. tim-tim Hallry
Go to Post The best metrics are your own. Do you see the impact of your efforts in your community? Do you feel like you should/could have won Chairman's, but another team was even more deserving? That's how you know FIRST is really working. dcarr Hallry
Go to Post The point of outreach isn't to "win" a "game" so I'm not sure what you hope to achieve with such a concept. The idea of "beating" another team in terms of outreach is fundamentally flawed. dcarr Hallry
Go to Post This slow-motion intro... Canada is rubbing their match cycle efficiency in our faces :( PayneTrain Hallry
Go to Post This year may be one of the first years where there is a drastic difference in Regional level and Championship level strategies that drive robot design. tim-tim Nathan Streeter
Go to Post I'm pretty sure there is a federal sequester on the bandwidth coming out of LSR. PayneTrain DominickC
Go to Post Even in the worst times, I get a reminder of just how wonderful my big FIRST family is. 216Robochick288 Tottanka
Go to Post They hit us, we hit them, it happens. Build your robots to take a hit and it doesn't matter. Greg Needel JohnBoucher
Go to Post What I learned from week-1 is that once again my son has been inspired to the level that he came home after the BAE Systems Granite State FIRST Robotics Regional Competition with the biggest smile I have seen on his face for a long long time. I am truly grateful for that. FIRST_Parent Anupam Goli
Go to Post Why does 1114 have to be good at everything? ;) Justin Montois Hallry
Go to Post The 48 defensive DNA lies dormant in the drive train. It's impossible to forget. Koko Ed A_Reed
Go to Post What is this? PVC pirates with no visible PVC? (at least that I can see) IMPOSTORS! theawesome1730 Whippet
Go to Post Another lesson is don't post on Chief Delphi disappointed, stop and evaluate first. Emotions suck sometimes. :-) sircedric4 Jay Trzaskos
Go to Post One of my early mentors gave me wise words -- when designing a system to compile & analyze information, your first design choice should always include consideration of a stack of 3x5 file cards. Jaxom CalTran
Go to Post Nothing worse than an intolerant field :D JB987 Whippet
Go to Post Their robot moves so fast that it changes colour due to the Dopler Effect. By rapidly alternating between driving away from the viewer (Redshift) and driving toward the viewer (Blueshift), they can make the viewer see it in their traditional purple colour. philso CalTran
Go to Post Teaching students should take place in the offseason. Applying the skills learned is what the real season is for. Andrew Lawrence synth3tk
Go to Post Action x (Passion + Vision) = Goal EricH IKE
Go to Post A good defense can defend against a good defense. Squeakypig Whippet
Go to Post Students... be sure to drill air holes in the crate though. Maybe toss in some cheetos for the programmers. Andrew Schreiber EricLeifermann
Go to Post Honesty and Integrity is the key to success. If I don't teach my team to be honest, I am a failure! team4384 Hallry
Go to Post Honesty and Integrity is the key to success. team4384 joelg236
Go to Post I used to be a FIRST Robotics mentor...then I took a Frisbee to the knee. Travis Hoffman CalTran
Go to Post Flattery will get you everywhere. nuggetsyl Hallry
Go to Post I think AndyMark just sold out of rabbits feet. BRAVESaj25bd8 billbo911
Go to Post Woody is wearing flippers... 2014 WATER GAME! Team23pitboss Hallry
Go to Post The imbalance and vibration is telling you something, you are not listening. Al Skierkiewicz theawesome1730
