During Kick-off, the team broke into three groups. Each group focused on different portions of the 133 page game manual. We then all met together to share information and discuss game strategy. Our goal was to get a good basic understanding of the game challenge before discussing robot design ideas on Sunday.
During the build season, the team will meet four nights each week and on Saturdays.
Some stats about this year's competition: 3652 teams will compete in 160 events in 27 countries.
