 Plano ISD Academy High School

10am-3pm

About the Event

Come join us and spend a day learning from each other and getting to know one another better! Our goal is to help North Texas FRC teams grow.

The structure of the day is that each veteran team who registers presents 45 minutes on a topic.  Your team members could come share something they do really well, or you could lead a round table about a topic so that we can all share and learn together. 

We hope to cover a wide range of topics such as mechanical, electrical, programming, marketing, branding, team structure and organization, but the agenda is really up to you! Rookie teams welcome!  Feel free to bring up to five student leaders with you. The event is free.

We have a special perspective in simplicity in design and building within limits. We will go through how we decide what we will build and how that is related to being a small team with not a lot of experience/resources/machining capability and how that influenced our past three robots and our success with each one.
