Go to Post I'll try to sum up the icon and compile thing quickly so as not to interrupt the design of SkyNet. Greg McKaskle EricVanWyk
Go to Post My team heard another team describe the Championships as "10,000 kids jamming the Georgia Dome for 3 days…more nerds per square foot than a Star Trek convention…and more purposefully employed " Is this true?, Because I don't think there could possibly be a more wonderful place on earth Emily3204 RyanCahoon

Go to Post The teams that know how to build good robots are the same teams that know how to build good teams, and they engage the students every step of the way. Chris is me Siri
Go to Post RTM does not stop after competition. ATannahill EricH
Go to Post The greatest reward you can give your mentors is to become one. Ed Sparks Andy Baker
Go to Post I don't think that FIRST is going to get better with a top down solution alone, it is going to take a grass roots effort to strengthen teams. That starts by teams getting off their "islands", self imposed or otherwise. Fe_Will Travis Hoffman
Go to Post Congratulations! You have been successful! You got what you wished for! Now get to work. gblake dlavery
Go to Post FRC competitions are fun, people. If you honestly need a video game system to keep you interested, you're ignoring a tremendous experience. Mr. Pockets Karibou
Go to Post Being a mentor doesn't have an age requirement. As long as you are positively influencing someone you could be called a mentor and a role model. EricLeifermann jmanela
