Over at denkbots, several of our team members are FIRST mentors and alumni. As another way to give back, we attempt to share our knowledge via a “Conceptual Robot in Three Days” or cRi3D, based on the popular Robot in Three Days Ri3D project.
We write three segments to explain our approach to robot design, in hopes that other teachers and mentors who might not be familiar with this approach may adapt and employ it to broaden their students’ horizons.
Below is the link to our consolidated conceptual Ri3D for FIRST POWERUP:
The three segments are:
Strategy and Research
These three segments culminate in The Reveal of our cRi3D!
Our goal is not to give the answer; it is to teach the process. We hope these articles will expose students to some new techniques and help those mentors who can find the start of a new season a little bit overwhelming.
This is our third year writing an article like this, so all feedback is appreciated and welcome!
If you find these articles helpful and would like to follow along as we continue our shenanigans, follow us on:
