Hey everyone. Spartan here. I’d just like some input on something, provided you’re okay with giving me advice =P.
Anyway, our team is off to a decent start this year, with new blood in our veins (yes, this means new guys) and a new mindset. We’ve been focusing on fundraisers right now to help pay for the entry fee.
The veterans that are left on our team (We took a hard hit last year, as half the team were seniors) have begun to develop a sort of learning process for our technical guys. We have been giving small lectures on basic and advanced mechanics and electrics, and the vice captain and I have been developing what we’re calling ‘Think Tank’ sessions, in which the new members are given a specific challenge with constraints that they must work with to come up with a working design for a specific thing, mainly a working robot design (or something along those lines).
Yes, I’m aware things are changing this year, but it’s good practice, right?
We’re also building things that we need for our events. Our robot cart was totaled at some point in the off-season somehow, so we’re having to build a new one of those ><. We’re also working on various projects on things we could find useful, just keeping our minds sharp. Oh. And we’re stressing GP and safety the most.
So, across from this, what else shoudl we do to get our new guys adjusted to the routines?
