Jack Chen, coach of Team 4017 RoboPandas reached out to us to see if we could have a collaborative Skype session with their team. Our teams connected on a variety of robot related issues; the RoboPandas had questions about programming and mechanum wheels, and we had a few regarding beacon pushers and the cap ball lift. Together, we exchanged tips and insight on robot design and strategy, and determined the best materials to use on our robot.
Overall, we feel both teams benefited from this workshop, and we all had a fantastic time. We hope to talk again with the RoboPandas! Special thanks to Jack Chen, their mentor, for organizing.
