The months of January through April is our build and competition season. During this time we typically meet Monday through Thursday evenings, and on Saturdays.
The rest of the year is our off-season. We typically meet on Tuesday and Thursday nights, and on Saturday mornings. This is when we train the students to design, build and program the robot, and attend off-season competitions.
Students are not required to attend all meetings. The team realizes that students have a lot of demands on their time, and that their school grades and family obligations are a priority. Like any other activity, the students will get more out of the program if they put more time into it.
