Go to Post It is a difficult balancing act - we're engineers because we like to solve problems, and to take a step back and let someone else solve it, with what may be a poorer solution, is darn hard. - DonRotolo [more]

Go to Post Mob JVN for autographs Jay Trzaskos Ian Curtis
Go to Post People should listen to this Andy Baker character, he seems like a smart guy... Karthik Beth Sweet

Go to Post It's just a game. artdutra04 Billfred
Go to Post If all you've seen of an event is the three days of the competition, you've missed 99% of the work that made it happen. Madison Elgin Clock

Go to Post Dedication to FIRST gets more challenging as life gets more complicated but the rewards are SOOOOO worth it! Sean Schuff Ian Curtis
Go to Post Adaptability is the key folks. Your job will not be the same 10 years from now (when I retire), or 20 years or 30 years from now. The tools and systems you use will change, and you must be able to adapt along with them. Bill Moore Billfred
Go to Post But, ya never know, Dave's out to mess with our heads... Kyle Love Billfred
Go to Post Stupid rules are not meant to be broken; they're meant to be changed. Unless and until they are changed, breaking them is wrong. Alan Anderson Billfred
Go to Post Yes, a good driver can effectively be the element that closes the loop, but only when there is a driver at the controls. Alan Anderson Billfred
Go to Post quite simply, not putting our best foot forward leaves us open to shooting ourselves in the foot. Jessica Boucher Billfred
Go to Post Please understand that teams run things differently for specific and very valid reasons. And, this is OK as long as the students are inspired. Alexander McGee Karthik
Go to Post These two options can both be used effectively to create a wonderful experience for the students, but limiting them to one area is like taking a globe, slicing it in half, and saying, "You can only explore this half." Alex Golec Jay Trzaskos
Go to Post FIRST is not advanced shop class KenWittlief Karthik
Go to Post Now please, go have some meaningful discussions that will inspire us all. Ken Leung Billfred
Go to Post I can't wait until Kick Off! Simultaneously across the country there will be one loud cry of "Doh!", followed by the sound of smacking foreheads with the palm of a hand, then "Why didn't I figure that out? I saw the hint". Indeed, hind sight is 20/20. billbo911 Ian Curtis
Go to Post Stop it with the "break the rules, just don't let anyone know" already! Alan Anderson Billfred
Go to Post Humility tends to take people places, pompous boasts tend to get people left at home by themselves. Karthik Bharat Nain

Go to Post ... so I have to ask: ... Are you nuts? - I hope you are - as crazy as Dean :^) KenWittlief Stu Bloom
Go to Post So go out and learn something new, even if it is old. Co-operate in this and you'll get much more out of it. Cheat and you are only cheating yourself. ChrisH Billfred
Go to Post I wonder if Radio Shacks all over should prepare for VEX robots dropping by for spare parts just like people going to a medical clinic... Wayne C. Ian Curtis
Go to Post FIRST kids never cease to amaze me. Wayne C. Billfred
Go to Post Thanks Autodesk! Al Skierkiewicz Billfred
Go to Post I once started to build a time machine. But then I went back in time and told myself that it wouldn't work, so I gave up on it. -dave dlavery Matt Krass
Go to Post Remember, however, that such software limitations in no way approximate the functionality of a multiple-speed, mechanical transmission. They're simply a convenient way of limiting your students' lead feet. Madison Billfred
Go to Post any robot that can hold and transport its team has found its purpose and can be considered complete Nitroxextreme kjohnson
Go to Post If you're a spectator that's going to complain about a "bad" call, you darn well better know for a FACT that the call was "bad". AmyPrib Billfred
Go to Post If everyone spent half as much time reading and understanding the rules as they do complaining, arguing, and disagreeing about rules, we might not even be having this discussion. AmyPrib Jay Trzaskos

Go to Post FIRST is difficult and it is challenging, but you arenít necessarily required to go off and build an 8 motor drivetrain and 4 motor / 8 pneumatic piston arm mechanism for the heck of it when a 2 motor non-shifting drivetrain and 2 motor arm does just as good a job. Bill Gold Karthik
