Technology Enrichment Sessions are offered in the fall as way to help new FIRST teams and refresh old FIRST teams on concepts from organizational skills, engineering methodology, programming, and conceptual design. The TE sessions are open to anyone interested and we encourage our new members to attend.
2013 TE Sessions
This years TE Sessions will be held on Tuesdays from 4:30 to 6 PM. The location is in the 14th Street Building. Please park in the lot furthest from the intersection of 14th Street and Hemphill. There will be a RoboJackets member at the side door to let attendees in. If you arrive late or early please use the front door close to the intersection.
Signups for this year are here.
September 10th – Strategy and Design
This session will focus on developing strategies for the FTC competition and developing designs based on those strategies.
September 17th – RoboJackets Break
We need time to train our incoming members, and this will serve as a good opportunity to build on the design session within your own teams.
September 24th – Mechanical (Drivetrain)
This session is all about picking the correct drivetrain and gear ratios for the competition.
October 1st – Mechanical (Manipulators)
Grippers, lifters, and kickers. This session will focus on the manipulator most appropriate for the FTC competition.
October 8th – Programming (Basic)
This session will cover the basics of LabView. The robot is nothing without the brains.
October 15th – Build Break
After the first 4 sessions you should have what you need to build your robot. Remember that you can always send us an email at any time at firstname.lastname@example.org with your questions.
October 22nd – Electrical
We move into more advanced topics at this point. This session will be tailored towards FRC teams looking to train new members of their electrical team, but FTC teams might find something interesting as well.
October 29th – Programming (Advanced/FRC)
This session will move into more advanced programming. It is possible that we will do as we did last year and go step by step through the code from our 2013 team.
November 5th – Shop Tour
We will bring you into the Student Competition Center at Georgia Tech where you can meet all of the SCC teams such as Solar Jackets, Wreck Racing, and of course, all of the RoboJacket teams. Come with questions, we love to answer.
November 12th – FTC Recap/Pre-Scrimmage/Pre-Competition
This is the day where you will want to bring in your near-completed robots. We will work with you to make sure your robot is in working condition for competitions.
