Video Transcript: Robot Rumble!
This robotics basketball is more mental, in that, you have to plan ahead.
You have to design the robot. It's more innovative rather than reactionary.
You know, every year is a challenge. We always have to come up with a different design.
This year, we spent about a week just designing.
We get a lot of ideas but there is also a lot of spirited debate, and I guess, eventually,
we either vote or just come to a consensus and that's how we make our decisions.
I learned a lot of technical skills, like how to program N-C-plus-plus.
Basically, I always wanted to go into engineering,
so I just learned so much about robotics and the mechanics about it.
I learned how to communicate. I learned how to build a robot.
I learned how to problem solve and get things done really quickly.
Everything I know about programming, electronics, It's all come from being on a FIRST team.
