Bayou workshops - save the date

Bayou Regional (LA/MS) area teams,

Workshops. Oct 27.

We're planning to host workshops for rookie and veteran FRC teams on Saturday, October 27 at Salmen High School in Slidell, LA. Details, topics, and schedule all TBD but largely depending on interest from other teams. We'll post details here and email them out by the end of this month.

Yes, we know it's an ACT test date. Sorry.

We'd like to encourage anyone interested in (co-)leading a session or presenting on a topic, suggesting a subject, or wanting to be added to an email list to reply here or send an email to team1912combustion(at)gmail.com.

Thanks!

-- Clark Rowley, Team 1912

Re: Bayou workshops - save the date

Clark,
Looking forward to it!

I'm willing to lead or co-lead a presentation on any topic I know anything about; if you have a hole somewhere, let me know. If not, subjects that come to mind are along the lines of "Making the most of". These would cover basic uses and some tips and tricks and hacks that I've created or collected over the years.
  • Making the most of the Kit Chassis (I could do an hour or go all day)
  • Making the most of your drill press (thinking an hour)
  • Making the most of Versaframe for manipulators (again an hour, possibly two)

We currently have a build session scheduled for that date; I've suggested that we relocate it to Salmen.

Thanks, Gus!

We're still recruiting presenters, but we've had offers for presentations on -

- Inspection and bumpers, from an experienced robot inspector
- a Chairman's Award overview, from an experienced RCA mentor
- we'd like to pair that with a workshop session on communicating with judges led by members of different teams
- Intro to CAD - from an engineer who works for one of our sponsors
- brainstorming techniques and concept generation - from an area team

I think your kit chassis presentation topic would be a great fit.
