"A great team is built off of great resources."
Building a robot requires a lot of materials! Tools, rulebooks- checking over and over again to make sure that everything is in compliance with First competition rules. Here, you'll find resources that we've used throughout the year to ensure that our bot and the building process will run smoothly.
INFINITE RECHARGE Game and Season Manual
The most valuable tool on this team isn't a wrench, or a screwdriver, or a saw- it's the manual. Consulting it almost every single day, the INFINITE RECHARGE Game and Season Manual is a necessity while building and programming the robot. On it, you'll find specifics for the robot, the tasks the robot will have to complete, measurements, and, of course, rules. You can access the manual by clicking here.
