Online Challenges

RECF Team Educational Video

This challenge offers robotics competition teams the opportunity to help other schools and clubs learn from their experience. In this challenge, schools, clubs, and teams will produce a video and a companion document on a specific subject area that new teams will learn from. We expect that you will have your own idea, but possible areas for the video include understanding how to analyze a game, how to build a specific mechanism such as a drive train, lifting arm, actuator, winch, etc., or how to best work as a team at a tournament. Use your imagination - the only restriction is that it has to contain something useful for a new team to know about competition robotics.
