Go to Post To think that one can "learn" engineering in 6 weeks while under the strain of building a robot too is proposterous. FIRST isn't about teaching. It's about inspiring. - Collin Fultz [more]

Go to Post Robot teams will expand to fill the available space. topgun Whippet
Go to Post The key is to get the WHOLE TEAM to understand that you are designing and building a robot, which is a complete system - not just a collection of mechanical assemblies stuck together. SteveGarward techtiger1
Go to Post 254 bends CIM shafts every now and then in the drivetrain. I didn't believe it was possible until I saw it myself. AustinSchuh Richard Wallace
Go to Post New CAD computer one day and the 254 Build Blog + Tech Binder the next? Christmas in July really does exist. Andrew Lawrence Billfred
Go to Post Either way... woop! FRC is awesome! Steven Smith Whippet
Go to Post There are no simple solutions, as every solution has its own problems. M. Lillis EricH
Go to Post I just want to see Aerial Assist again. Played on Lunacy regolith. With minibot poles. Which are on coopertition bridges. Is that too much to ask for? ;) M. Lillis Andrew Lawrence
Go to Post If the GDC made a game that consisted of driving in a straight line, it would probably be the hardest game in FRC history. themccannman Hallry

Go to Post Want the TL;DR of it? Keep it simple, effective, and easy to use. Andrew Schreiber cadandcookies
Go to Post Just keep doing. Everything. Keep designing, keep building, keep learning, keep fundraising. Build more robots, try more ideas, compete more and more and more. Andrew Lawrence brennonbrimhall
Go to Post first post and the FRC "well what is a stick" comes in. Toothpick, does it need to be round, does a carbon fiber chain of Buckie balls count as a stick. CD posters are sooooo predictable. Foster EricH
Go to Post I also exclusively use FRC team numbers when punching in times for the microwave. Calvin Hartley Jarren Harkema
Go to Post Start building your robot as soon as possible, but not sooner. Richard Wallace Whippet
Go to Post When I'm hiring an intern "Award Winning VRC Notebook" isn't applicable. But "Award winning technical documentation" sure is. Andrew Schreiber gblake
Go to Post Why does school have to get in the way of more important things like FIRST? When would we ever need to know about the stuff there teaching in here? Briansmithtown MichelB
Go to Post You can't observe things that aren't seen or reported. Andrew Schreiber dubiousSwain
Go to Post Your best friends are all team members and you could never live without any of them because robotics people are the best people. Riverdance MichelB

Go to Post After all FIRST & CD are both places to learn everything. popnbrown Taylor
Go to Post You know you're addicted to FIRST when you text your mentors more than your friends from school. LindsayC Kevin Selavko
Go to Post Learn to respect the opinions of others, even if they are the complete opposite of yours. Hallry JRuegsegger
Go to Post Many students I have met will insist that nothing is better than FIRST robotics. And most people would agree that a ham sandwich is better than nothing. So does it logically follow that a ham sandwich is better than FIRST robotics? tsaksa Briansmithtown
Go to Post We are all one big team, even though we are split into thousands of smaller teams. DonRotolo Hallry
Go to Post You mean how many Edible Data Analysis Metrics and Aggregated Measurable Entities (EDAMAME)? Andrew Schreiber Billfred
Go to Post Isn't FIRST robotics the answer to life, the universe, and everything? weberr Whippet

Go to Post Scrap it and use the cheesey poof's design vladtheimpaled TheHolyHades1
Go to Post The competition is over, I have no other FIRST-related activities to pursue–WHAT ELSE AM I GOING TO DO WITH MY LIFE BUT BROWSE CHIEF DELPHI UNTIL JANUARY???? David8696 Whippet
Go to Post You can sometimes step outside the box if you have properly thought through the question. Jim Zondag cadandcookies
Go to Post At the end of the day, and this is where many may disagree, it's about what is learnt and not about who wins. popnbrown bduddy
Go to Post More later, if anyone's interested and I still have homework to avoid. Chris is me TheHolyHades1

Go to Post Data is never ugly. It is only how you use it that can be. Ed Law kiettyyyy
Go to Post Don't put any weight into the OPR. It's ugly and its momma dresses it funny. wilsonmw04 Jacob Bendicksen
Go to Post Q: "What does your robot do?" A: "It collects data about the surrounding environment, then discards it and drives into walls" tsaksa Whippet
Go to Post Maybe next season I want to develop and test a new metric for FRC scouting: Bumper Quality Rating (BQR). BQR-5: The platonic ideal of FRC bumpers. ... BQR-0: Moderate to heavy use of duct tape. I believe BQR would outperform OPR as a predictor of on-field robot performance. Nate Laverdure Christopher149
Go to Post You know what they call the graduate with the lowest GPA in med school? Doctor. You know what they call the fourth robot in the alliance that wins Einstein? Champion. Billfred A_Reed
