A FIRST team handbook is a good thing. A FIRST team handbook from Team 51 is a great thing.
Although this is a well-written portion of this handbook, it is still an understatement:
"We have some of the brightest and most dedicated engineers in America today on our team. The engineers in their regular jobs are responsible for many of the innovations you see on today’s best transportation. These
dedicated team members spend many, many of their free time hours on this project and as mentors to our students. Their expertise allows the dreams and ideas of the students to be transformed into reality.
Take the time to communicate and get to know these very talented and nice people. Ask them about their families and do not hesitate to ask advice for they have a wealth of knowledge. They are valuable resources for tutoring
while we are traveling."
