Before answering your questions and I don't want this to come off wrong. I say these things based on my own mistakes in the past. I want to emphasize reading and re-reading the Challenge documents by the team members and remembering specifically (GP2).  It will be important that your team members can explain why they did what they did relative to the rules. 

Answering your questions in order: 

1) this question deals with several rules GP2, D01, D07 thru D10, all of R. The technicians can pick up the robot and take the penalty Page 25 or program it to come back to base with no penalty.  You should keep in mind (R-09 thru R-18) when making these decisions.  Keep in mind specifically that if the robot is interrupted all mission pieces being transported are lost to the referee (R14). 

2) the robot attachments can be changed whenever the robot is in base for relaunch. Keeping in mind rules regarding motors and base.

Hello everyone,

 

So I had two very simple questions that came from my team at practice the other night, and we just wanted to check.

 

1.)    Are the kids at the table able to pick the robot up after a challenge and put back at in the base or do they need to program it to come back to the base before starting another run? 

 

2.)    Are the kids able to remove and add parts such as arms between programs?

 

Thank you guys!
