Robotics 4 Rookies

Robotics 4 Rookies

Team 781 presents: Robotics 4 Rookies! This introductory guide was designed and created by Team 781 students for new members and new teams. Robotics 4 Rookies gives those who are new to FIRST an inside look at how FIRST - specifically FRC - works and what to expect. It was designed to help rookie members get involved with their teams, and to help rookie teams get a head start on their journey through FRC.

Originally, Robotics 4 Rookies was a presentation that Team 781 students created to ease rookie members into getting involved by showing them what FIRST is and how Team 781 runs. This presentation led to a noticeable increase in rookie activity and we decided this would be a great tool to share with the rest of the FIRST community! The presentation transformed into a handbook.

 


 

Robotics 4 Rookies

Updated February 2015

At the beginning of the 2012/2013 FRC Season, members of the Kinetic Knights created a presentation for rookie members as a recruitment strategy to help new members ease into the team. Compared to previous recruitment techniques, Robotics 4 Rookies proved to be quite successful. Over the course of the season, we saw an increased level of involvement and enthusiasm in our rookie members. These results led to the creation of the Robotics 4 Rookies handbook as a way to make this resource available to other FRC Teams. Whether you are a rookie team, a rookie member on your team, or even just anyone who is interested in getting involved with FIRST in any way, Robotics 4 Rookies is 4 you!
