Then, when we understood what isometric and orthographic drawings were, we transferred our skills to CAD. We used our CAD Tutorial to get started.

We’ll use these skills for designing robot parts for preseason and also for build season.

We had a group session talking about what elements of our team story should be included in our Chairman’s essay and presentation. Each group did post it note brainstorming.

We watched the FIRST safety video (for the youth protection program). This video is a requirement for safety training this year.

As usual, we split up into subgroups to work on electrical, mechanical and programming.
