My school district has decided to fund FIRST Robotics at my high school next year and I am the person who is going to be the faculty sponsor. I have looked at the FIRST web sites (national and Texas) and the program is very challenging. I am looking for anyone who has been involved with FIRST Robotics who would be willing to talk to me about how to begin. There is a lot of information about how to sign up, register, etc. on line that I already know about. What I need to know is what isn’t there – in other words, what do teams do in the “off season” to prepare? I am especially interested in finding out what I need to be doing right now to get geared up. If you know of anyone who would be willing to talk to me, could you please pass along their contact information?Thank you so much.
