Due to the current circumstances, we have had to change the way we run our fall season. Typically, students spend time getting to know each other, the way our team is run, and the specifics of their guilds. These are all accomplished by coming up with projects for each guild to work on. This fall season, we have split our team into four sub-teams in order to limit the number of students that come in at any given time. Our mentors and some of our student leaders came up with a robot game (or intramural), and each sub-team has the fall season to design, build, and program a robot to compete in the game. Unfortunately, this event will not be open to the public, but it will be videoed.
This event is scheduled for November 11.
Fall Bootcamp is a two-week training course where new students who are interested in joining robotics. During Fall Bootcamp, the students try and expirience all the different aspects of robotics.
During Fall Preseason, each aspect of team EPIC prepares for the competition season. Each guild also works on different projects that may prove useful during competition.
Competition Season is a six-week time frame, in which our robotics team needs to design, build, and program a robot to do specific tasks, according to each years theme. We then compete and form alliences with other FRC teams.
