As always, the deadline is nominally Saturday at midnight Eastern.

Go!

Student: “I swear I didn’t know that Mt. Dew was your.”
Robot: “You can tell that to the Robo-Judge.”

When you just can’t enough time to go out to amusement park, something else will just have to do instead. Such is life in FRC.

Nothing to be concerned about; just part of her training to be packed & shipped in the crate for those last-minute repairs.
Sometimes it helps to have David Blaine’s sister on the team.

Dalek 1.0 captures its first human.

this is what happens when polymorph runs out before you finish.

This gives a whole new meaning to Human Player!

Team 438 was caught here while exploring the possibilities of reducing transportation costs to get to/from regional events. The concept was not well received by the team members.

This practice facility didn’t work out because of which of the following:
a) unpowered practice robots for balancing
b) carpeted ramp (everyone knows it’s a polycarb cover over HDPE)
c) too many visitors wanting to get up close and personal with the robots without PPE
d) all of the above

It just goes to show you, if you don’t read the rules, you’re gonna get a penalty.

For all you human players who are habitually penalized during matches, this is your punishment.

They TOLD me this’d be a great, hands-on experience, yet here I am just sittin’ on my fanny <sigh>

Throughout the six weeks of build season, this student became particularly attached to their robot and its game pieces.

(New entry)

This student was running in the shop, and ended up like this despite warnings of “Don’t strain yourself”…

Sorry for the delay, folks–my laptop was tied up in a months-overdue Time Machine backup with a drive with a finicky USB cable. Speed aside, the necessary stance to use my laptop during that would’ve looked like a laser alarm in a spy movie.
