LESSONS LEARNED DURING THE 2020 SEASON
*Every teammate needs to do their part for things to go smoothly.
*Practice makes perfect. The more experience you can get the better
*It's important to be on the same page at all times with your other teammates.
*It's critical not to over engineer simple things.
*make sure all parts are square when adding things to the robot. One small deviation at the beginning it touch to correct down the line.
* Communication with teammates is vital. Judges may only talk with someone from the build team, but they need to know about the budget and marketing as well.
*You can never have enough volunteers (or Little Debbie snacks!).
*Getting other classes involved makes the whole school excited for the program. Thank you, carpentry class for your help with the practice field!
*Knowing things "in theory" and being able to do them "in practice" can be a scary transition sometimes, but we all learn from our mistakes.
