–>Robot Game Updates & Project FAQs – IMPORTANT
It is EXTREMELY important that teams check the Robot Game Updates page and the Project FAQ page frequently. Your team may have questions as they dive into the Challenge and the postings here contain official information that will be in effect at tournaments. Many teams assign a team member to check these pages before each meeting. It’s a great way to delegate responsibility!

–>Work as a Team
Remember that coaches and team members should read Challenge documents (the Robot Game and the Project) together. Work together to make sure everyone understands the Challenge. Even if some vocabulary is new for you or your team members, learn together!
