Our 2020 - 2021 season meetings have been modified to accommodate COVID-19 precautions.
We follow FIRST teams posted Team Meetings with COVID-19 Restrictions guideline and CT CIAC and regional guidelines.
Robot meetings are held in-person based on the City of New London current COVID-19 attendance policies. Project meetings are held virtually via Zoom.
Southeastern CT Robotics COVID-19 Guidelines are reviewed and approved by parents before any team member can attend a meeting. Members can also attend a Robot meeting via Facetime, Discord or Zoom if they feel more comfortable doing this. We are planning on our tournaments being virtual in 2020 and have designed our Projects accordingly.
Our Robot table has a webcam for recording and sharing our best rounds. We hope to be able to post our Robot run webcam images to our website soon, as well.
When the season teasers are released in April, we begin our background research into the worldwide problem being represented and start brainstorming ideas for innovative solutions to mitigate the problem. Teams meet with experts and go on a related field trip. There is a Mock Competition in October with outside judges to help us gauge our readiness.
In a typical season our Qualifier competition is in November and our State Competition is in December.
