So, I am in the process of launching Nashville’s first FRC team at a high school with a BEST Robotics team that I am currently mentoring… HELP! I am looking for local FRC veterans interested in mentoring the team…anyone out there? The regional director has already recommended the team for a JC Penny grant and has other potential sponsors lined up, but I need mentors. Please let me know if you are interested!
You might take a look at Vanderbilt University. There are some great engineering labs there like this: http://robotics.vuse.vanderbilt.edu
You might be able to get some graduate students involved. If you are interested, I would be happy to make an introduction.
