In honor of us just restructuring our judging presentation, our next blog post covers some of the nuances of judges, answered based off the advice of an actual FTC judge! Heather Hinton was a judge at the Worlds Championships last year and has kindly taken the time to answer a couple of our questions.
The next part of our resources page we’re revamping is our hardware section. We’ve made 3 brand new cheat sheets: one for 3D printing, using GrabCAD, and an overall intro to using Autodesk Inventor. In honor of that, we’ve got one of our Joshes (the hardware lead) and Rebecca, our resident 3D printing expert, to answer a couple questions about how we build the robot. We’ll also have a separate post later on about the specifics of how we actually designed it.
Yesterday (it's past midnight and I'm still working on robotics, dear me -Linnea), we went over how to get involved in SACOT for Texas teams. But what about other people who want to get involved in their own states? We’ve got a special guest today to answer a couple questions about how to set up a SACOT-like organization. Philip is the President of SACOT and a member of FRC team 2468, so it’s safe to say he’s an expert on establishing such an organization.
In honor of our new STEM Advocacy page, our next blog post consists of more details about the STEM Advocacy Conference of Texas, or SACOT. It’s the first of two about advocacy, this one with a focus solely on Texas. Our next one, featuring the founders of SACOT, will have more information about how teams from other states can set up similar organizations.
Welcome to our first resource walkthrough! Before we present our new resources, we’re going to start with the highlights of everything we’ve got so far. You can find them on our resources page, which will be further updated as we create new resources. Each highlight will go as follows: 1) A brief overview of who made it for what purpose 2) How they can help your team. We’ll try to keep it brief so we aren’t wasting any of your time.
Hello world! Welcome to QuadX’s fully revamped blog, complete with season updates and bad puns. We used to update our blog religiously, but decided that nobody really cares about what movie we watched after our most recent build day. Trust us, we don’t need any more reminders about how limited our social life is. That’s what Twitter (link to) is for.
