About how many hours does your team work on a normal build season day? One of our advisersrs does not think that we need to work longer then 3:00- 5:30, except for one day a week we would stay till 8:00. Do you think that those times would be practical or not? Please respond to this.:confused:

Week 1:
Saturday: 8 hours
Sunday: 6 hours
Monday: 3.5 hours
Tuesday: 5 hours
Wednesday: Off
Thursday: 6 hours
Friday: Off
Saturday: 8 hours

The rest of the season is Tues/Thurs for 5 hours and Saturday 8 hours, but that doesn’t count the stuff we do at home in CAD or researching materials, etc.

We have…many ambitions…

Here’s what I do with my teams:

M-F: 3:30-6 (MWF: required study hall for all members 3:30 -4:30)

Sat: 8am - 8 pm is open to the team. Time varies depending on need.

Sunday: Rest

Friday night get longer as the build season get shorter…

well normally we spent everyday after school from 5 to like 9 or 10 but this year we stay from 4-6 on monday to thursday then late on friday and early saturday to late saturday and that really isnt enough time we think

hope that helps

Every Week:

Monday 6:00-9:00
Tuesday 3:20-6:30
Wednesday 6:00-9:00
Thursday 3:20-6:30
Friday 6:00-9:00

Weekends: whenever we can come in
MLK & Presidents’ day: All day

(some team members (leaders, really involved members) stay from 3:20-9:00 Mon, Wed, Fri, and study hall hours also(1.5 hours every other day))

Hmm, our team seems to use less time. Wednesdays and Fridays 5-9pm, Saturdays 9-5pm. Of course, we always stay later than officially posted, and during the last weekend before Ship we do not have school Friday and Monday, so it’s 9-? all four days. Last year I clocked in at 65 hours the whole weekend.

Tuesdays: 2:30 to 5:30
Thursdays: 2:30 to 5:30
Saturdays: 10 AM to 5 PM

During the end of the build,

Tuesdays: 2:30 to 5:30
Thursdays: 2:30 to 5:30
Possibly Wednesdays.
Saturday: 9 to 9
Sunday: 12 to 5

We work from when school ends on thursday and friday until 8, 10-8 on saturday, and 12-5 on sunday.

Monday-Friday: 1:30 to 3:30
Saturday: 7:00 to 3:00
Sunday is off
We can change times if we need to.

Any other days off as necessary.

We go from 6-9 on mon-thurs and on saturdays we go from 9-3. Sometimes we’ve gone longer.

M-Th : 2:10 to 5-5:30
Sat : 8 to 3
Sunday: as needed

end times vary as weeks go on, and time is needed
also many students have 9th off (1:28-2:10)

Early in the season, we’re usually working weekdays from 3:15-6:00, and on Saturdays as needed. As the season wears on/we fall behind schedule, we usually work later on weekdays (8:00-ish) and come in on weekends. Sundays are off either way - Everybody needs some free time!

Mondays and Wednesdays:
2:15 [end of school] - Earliest: 4:20, Latest Rarely 6:30


Last Week:

We are meeting
Sun, Sat: 10 - 7:00pm
Mon-Fri: 12 - 8pm
It doesnt matter if there is football on weekends, holidays and/or birthdays.
We celebrate/enjoy them all in school. :eek:
I am shocked by some of the teams schedules. I heard of one team today in Hawaii that was meeting only Wed. of this week, since kickoff. :yikes:

Constructing a robot isn’t the only thing some teams do. There’s that webpage, updated daily. CA documentation preparations, buying of supplies, ordering materials, meals, etc. etc. etc.

For 1618:
Monday, Tuesday, Thursday: 3:30-5:00 (unless/until we enter crunch time)
Saturday: 9:00-1:00 (with same caveat)

For 2815:
Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday: 6:00-9:00 (or we run out of work)
Saturday: Not officially defined to my knowledge, but I’m packing a lunch.

Monday through Thursday: typically 6:30 - 9:00 (we used to stay later, but the custodial staff gets off earlier, and needs time to lock up the building)
Friday: the occasional emergency meeting, if there were snow days or we’re super behind schedule
Saturday: typically 8 am - 5 pm
Sunday: typically 12 - 5

So that’s about 24 hours a week.

we work Mon, Tues, Thrus, Fri, Sat

today the majority of our team stayed until 6

Mon - 2:30-5
Tues - 2:30-5
Thrus - 2:30-5
Fri - 2:30-5
Sat - 9-5

soo 18+ hours a week

Mon-Fri 4-8PM
Sat. 10-10
Sun 12-8

so roughly 38 hours a week and the days get stretch near the end.

Monday through Thursday : 3:00PM-8:00PM
Saturday : 9:00AM ~ 2:30PM
You need more hours =)

All weekdays some of us stay from 2:10 to later than 5, Saturdays start at 9am and end between 2pm and midnight, of course the closing days of the FTC season we left at 10:30.(Pizza hut took an hour to deliver which didnt help)
