3 days before Kickoff, the students meet at the pit to discuss rules, the new FIRST website, team roles, and watched the game trailer. We went over the “Robot in 3 days” program and resources in the pit like power tools, safety equipments, and software programs. Our mentor, Gary, also went over the upcoming chassis build for rookie teams at the Kickoff at the Space and Rocket Center. We will be helping rookie teams assemble the gear box and getting them started on the program. The Mad Rockers will be attending the Rocket City FIRST (pun intended) Regional here in Huntsville, AL as one of the home teams and the Smokey Mountain Regional. Can’t wait for Kickoff!
