Red Nation Robotics #4576

The People Behind the Team

Team #4576 is made of several Sub-teams that coordinate throughout the year. By dividing into specialized groups members are able to focus on specific goals of FIRST ®. Members may participate in both technology and outreach teams,

the two categories of sub-teams. All members participate in outreach teams for at

least the predetermined number of hours each year. This participation furthers the goal of sharing the appreciation for science and technology, which is the

reason we exist. Seasons vary according to the demands of the challenges put

forward by FIRST, our structure is organized but also fluid enough to adjust to new requirements.

Safety


Lead- Sydney Schoolfield

Instilling a culture of safety is a value that every individual in the FIRST community must embrace as we pursue FIRST’s mission and vision. FIRST Robotics Competition has adopted safety as a core value and has established the framework for safety leadership in all aspects of the program.

Design Team

Lead - Sydney

The Design Team develops strategies and robot designs. They research other team ideas by participating
in web forums (such as ChiefDelphi). They develop 3 dimensional models of the robot using tools based on robot
strategies and prototyping efforts. CAD members electronically draw each part of the robot during the design phase of the build season, so that all parts are documented and reproducible.
