Go to Post Remind students that it's okay to take breaks, or even quit the team if they have to. Tell them you won't be disappointed, or upset. Even if students don't end up leaving the team, just knowing that option is available is such a weight off of one's shoulder. Vale bduddy
Go to Post My pants reflect those of my team. marshall IndySam

Go to Post Our team is attending an upcoming event this weekend, so I have to get my entire life and scouting sheet together. kevjapan Emmerz
Go to Post Just to confuse the GDC, that should probably be done on Q&A opening day... they won't expect a bumper question until Build Week 4! EricH Xand10
Go to Post We were actually going to question the rules this year about how sentient an AI has to be before we can call it part of the drive team... marshall firecrafty
Go to Post "The three most dangerous things in the world are a programmer with a soldering iron, a hardware engineer with a software patch, and a user with an idea." - Rick Cook smitikshah vigneshv

Go to Post Have you ever wanted to do something and then been told that you couldn't do it for at least another year for any reason and had your desire to do it fade over the course of that year? [...] Alienation is hurtful. Especially those who feel they have earned the right to not be. arichman1257 ctt956

Go to Post FRC isn't a program that is aiming for people that already want to go into STEM. The point is to expose people to these fields when they may not otherwise have had an interest in them, and cultivate any passion that forms out of that experience as a result of it. Chris is me Katie_UPS
Go to Post There is no secret sauce - but we get a lot more done with coffee. JuliaGreen Katie_UPS
Go to Post When teams encounter a problem with their design, sometimes it's best to stop and take a different approach, instead of continuing along a more difficult path. There are often many paths they can take to achieve the same result. Jon Stratis ctt956
