Go to Post One of my former students went on to intern with SpaceX and Tesla, and is now back as a mentor. He came early today and I introduced him to my class. He got a pretty solid reception that might compare favorably to being a pro athlete. The first question he got was about the $. mrnoble Billfred

Go to Post +1 for cardboard assisted design (CAD)! Richard Wallace Skyehawk
Go to Post Brevity is the soul of wit. JVN itsjustjon

Go to Post I agree it's a terrible idea, but part of me also feels like it'd be fun ;) FredyK200 Xand10

Go to Post Walls are put there to see how much you really want it. Daniel_LaFleur RoboChair
Go to Post If there is no creative defense this year, I'll have to go back and re-examine a lot of my basic assumptions. Things like length, time, and gravity. GeeTwo cadandcookies
Go to Post You know that clever thing? Don't do that. It's ok to take risks if you think everything through, but if your CAD looks like an Inspector Gadget cartoon, its time to slow down... dmaggio744 Bkeeneykid
Go to Post Code for all scenarios you need to handle and pray to RNGesus. RoboChair kiettyyyy

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
