Holy cow, this came off so super-awesome! What you see above are photos from day 1 of 2 days of driver tryouts. The team is looking for several drivers who can take coaching, handle stress, and drive the robot efficiently.

The last picture above shows a little of the tryout course conceived by the captains, including a mock pyramid structure from the 2013 game, Ultimate Ascent. They simulated the stress of driving at competition by playing loud music and coaching the kid continuously.

I’m proud of the captains for organizing this event. They’ve done all the legwork and are getting excellent results from the limited time we have with kids.
