Go to Post Is it weird that I was hoping we wouldn't have too many snow days so that graduation wouldn't run into Battlecry? ScoutingNerd175 Elgin Clock

Go to Post Who cares about the score? The score is just numbers on a board, the exciting part is watching the robots interact and seeing robots( and more importantly, people) do the impossible. Herodotus Elgin Clock
Go to Post If we can transform our culture to the point where girls swoon over guys as they pull their dremel off their belt and carve some speed holes in a smooth fluid motion, I think FIRST is half way to its goal. When we get the guys to swoon over the girls for their hot moves on the 5-axis, we have won. EricVanWyk Elgin Clock
Go to Post So I thought to myself "Man, I wish I was a part of a large technically minded community... oh... right..." BordomBeThyName Elgin Clock

Go to Post Well, it worked in inventor . . . Chris Fultz Éowyn
Go to Post ... it's us against all the bad-grammar-usin', "ya know"-slingin', graciously excepting, "congradulations"-totin', "nu kU ler"-spoutin' linguistic Luddites out there. We'll see who wins! :D dlavery Eric Finn
Go to Post That wheel appears to have been forged deep within the fires of Mount Awesome. viking1902 Eric Finn
Go to Post No offense, but telling the Killer Bees they should do something is like telling Micheal Jordan how to dunk a basketball (or Lebron James for you young'ens who don't know who Michael Jordan is)... Don Wright Eric Yahrmatter

Go to Post All the robots win, because we built them and they work. ;) synth3tk EricH
Go to Post You can't stop trying to look for other ways to do things, or that really defeats the whole purpose of inovation. AmoryG EricH
Go to Post It's a good things we're engineers who regularly squeeze out 'miracles' with a severely limited budget, eh? I think that's an important aspect that we as mentors need to show the students from time to time, and this year is a perfect opportunity. JesseK EricH
