Over 20 teams participated in “Robot in 3 Days,” the founding team, Team Ri3D 1.0, got together to take a look at some of the best and unique ideas that came out of this years’ build. We also introduce some lessons learned by the teams and some additional recommendations as you build for this year’s FIRST Robotics Competition challenge: “Infinite Recharge.”
Check it out here:
“Robot in 3 Days” is one part education and one part entertainment. Our goal is to show students an engineering process to use for strategizing, brainstorming ideas, prototyping, and building a functional robot to compete in FIRST Robotics Competition and FIRST Tech Challenge events. Teams often lack mentor support or have low resources. We strive to show methods that can be implemented using easily accessible parts and common tools.
Students: Try to not focus on our designs, but on the methods we use to problem solve. Think about this years’ game and ways your team can uniquely approach it. Unsure where to begin? Try creating these prototypes and improve upon them. Have a great idea? Test it out. Good luck!
