2023 Week 1 Newsletter: 1/7/23 – 1/14/23

This week has marked the start of Team 702’s 23rd competition season beginning with Kickoff at Da Vinci High School, where we watched this year’s game reveal, where we strategized and discussed the game, hosted by FRC team 4201. Then we went back to our room, and worked with our team to discuss possible plans for 2023’s challenge.

On January 8th, we hosted a strategy session with teams 1197; Torbots, 1452; Omnicats, and 6000, Firehawks to discuss and plan our solutions to this year’s game. We broke down all of the scoring methods, how the game will play, and various strategies to be able to find success in the 2023 challenge. We then discussed what we would build as a solution to the game and what goals we are trying to achieve. 

On January 14th, we held our competition test for students to earn eligibility to go to competition, based around game knowledge, safety, and positive behaviour for competition.
