Basic Bot Guides Available on our Website
FIRST® Tech Challenge has created Basic Bot Guides for REV and TETRIX robotics kits to help teams get started building their robots. You can find them on our Robot Building Resources webpage. These are a great resource to help rookie teams get started building their robots and understanding the basics! Thank you to our amazing volunteers David and Lydean Spangler for their help creating and writing these guides for us.
