So, a group of around 8 kids, as an offshoot from our current FTC team, are just beginning to work on starting an FRC team. We’re putting together a team handbook, creating a website, and are just beginning to recruit mentors and email sponsors. In a parents meeting we organized, my parent, and the rest of them, all balked at the amount of work required, the money needed to be raised, and the machining resources needed.
I personally, as team captain, am going to have a very busy summer, with college applications, an eagle project and an internship, but the parents seemed to think that this was far too big of an undertaking and is entirely infeasible.
Are they right? Or if not, how can I convince them?
