So tonight, I thought of an idea. During a late night discussion of the various connections between some storied FRC teams (sometimes Akash and I stay up late to talk about robots, since we’re giant losers), a question came across my mind. With so many teams being the result of other FRC teams, either through direct / indirect mentorship or team splits and combination… What would a FIRST family tree look like? With so many teams partly responsible for the success of other teams, the amount of inter-team connections must be astounding. So, after a quick search on CD turned up nothing, I’ve decided to collect a little data and make one of my own in my spare time.
So seeing as there really isn’t a database for any of this stuff anywhere, I would love your help! If you could list what teams your team’s mentored, or what team mentored your team in your rookie year, that would be awesome! Any other additional inter-team information would also be appreciated.
edit: Akash found this really old thread a few minutes after I hit post. We’re playing with graphing / charting software and want to make a new, fresh tree for only FRC, though, so a new thread would make more sense.
