If a team has to pull out of the competition due to COVID exposure, can they roll their tournament fee into the virtual tournament in February?
Kaitlin Ilnitzki
09:12
Yes! If teams have to pull out we will roll their tournament fee into the remote February season. We will talk about that later!

What if I am worried that my team isn't ready? We only have one mission working about half the time! :)

Do we need parents to sign the release forms prior to Oct 10th or prior to the robot games?
Christine Carroll
33:10
Yes! we envy your your one mission done!! We're at zero . Awesome work!
Sean DeArras

Robot is also only one part of the challenge. I've coached two teams who went to states and never been even close to the top robot.

Sean DeArras

Double check which pins are in the hitch of the truck, it freely drops down on ours.

Cargo on the truck - can you explain more. Does the cargo need to be put on truck by Robot or should it be on truck while at Home. (I read the rules only 1 time, so what I’m asking might be wrong or may not be making sense)

Rubrics are your team’s best friend: https://firstinspiresst01.blob.core.windows.net/first-forward/fll-challenge/fll-challenge-cargo-connect-rubrics-2021-22-greyscale.pdf

Regarding the Innovation Project Resource: Our team members attended the virtual tour of Amazon fulfillment center (I recommend other teams to attend, if they not done already). Wanted to Know is there any facility/resource(s) where we can physically(in-person) visit the warehouse or warehouse fulfillment facility.

"Containers on Platooning Trucks must be completely outside of home." Part of M15
Angela Parsley
45:05
For unused capacity, does the container start at home or in game space?
Shanti k
45:12
wow. Whatever Martin said about Mission 15, I need to watch the recording again 😀
Sean DeArras
47:27
And Theat mission can remain in home M02

On YouTube, many warehouse facilities have training videos about their distribution centers. Here is a video on Family Dollar careers - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iiZdriO6BaY

How do R14 referee checks work? Do they need to give a thumbs up and wait for one in return, or something else?
Manasa Alladi
57:53
Can we have Kahoot details please.
Sean DeArras
58:08
The rules seemed to imply the checks have to be done before each launch, so I wasn't sure. Thank you.

It was the "show the referee" part that tripped me up, didn't remember that from before.

Our robot became self-aware and doesn't do what we tell it to do! What should we do with a mis-behaving robot?
