Dec 12, 2015 Great fun serving at the FIRST FLL tournament as a Robot Design Judge for the first time ever
I have been conducting research with FIRST FTC and FRC teams for two years, but I have never been a volunteer for any FIRST robotics tournaments. So I signed up a few volunteer positions, starting with the FLL robot design judge. The reason was that I would like to learn more about robot design so that I could use my doctoral training in Human Factors to see some potential opportunities to improve the robot design or robotics education. After getting the notice of assignment, I went through all the online training sessions for judges and got a judge certificate~woohoo~
