2018 Kit Bot Build Day

From Kit to running Bot in one day!

This is an important event to help rookie teams get their FRC build season off to a good start, but veteran teams are also welcome. Mentors will be available to demonstrate, help, and teach. By the end of the day, each team will have built and be able to drive their own working robot base. Having a working Bot on day two of the build season is especially helpful for Rookie teams that have never designed actuators, grippers, lifters, drive trains, etc. before.
