  • Quick Build: This is an opportunity for you to work with experts to build a base robot.  This will allow your team to walk away with a working robot that they can work with prior to the training session later in the month.  This is a good opportunity for both rookie teams as well as new members to existing teams.  You are encouraged to bring your kit so that you can walk away with a working robot.  Kits will be available for you to use if you do not yet have your kit.  Consider this a beginners course on how to build the robot and how to connect the basic components.  You will not walk away with a competition ready robot but you will have made a big step forward in understand the robot.  We will facilitate three work rooms.  The first will focus on the frame, the second programming and the phones, the third will focus on strategies for the game.  Space for the Quick Build is limited.  You will need to go to KCQUICKBUILD.COM to register.
