My younger son has joined his high school Robotics team to compete in the FIRST Robotics competition (website).
The students build fairly sophisticated tele-operated robots to compete in an invented arena. Each year is different; last year was a basketball gathering + shooting game.
The student team has a lot of volunteer mentors; parents, community members, geeks who just think it's fun. This will be my first year as a mentor.
I was wondering - is anyone else at tcmaker an FRC mentor? I thought that the Hack Factory could be the perfect place to help construct a practice area.
We won't know any more details until kick off day on January 5th. The catch is that we only get six weeks to build a robot, so any work done would have to be done in a hurry.
Anyone interested in working together on this?
