Do you need an example for your team's engineering notebook?
Here is our notebook from the 2018-2019 FTC Season, Rover Ruckus.
FIRST Tech Challenge (FTC) is for students in grades 7-12. For FTC, students in teams up to 15 compete in a 12 by 12 foot field with robots they design and build. Students build their robots out of reusable parts and code their robot in Java. Students develop engineering skills while applying concepts from their math, science, and career-technical education courses.
