The FRC build season lasts 6 weeks for most of the 70,000 students around the world, but for kids in MD, DC and Northern VA it is going to be less than 5 weeks this year. Winter storm Jonas has really done a number on our build season plans and we are way behind.
We lost an entire week of prototyping, building and testing. This is going to be hard to recover from, but we will. On a brighter note, we have unbelievable CAD, our awards are well under way and we have build plans, build kits and build teams all ready for when we get back into school. In addition, we are trying to work with school officials to get extra time in the lab over the next few weeks to make up for some of the time we lost this week.
