I have been thinking about visiting a FIRST robotics team for more than a year, but never worked out the coordination and schedule. Just this week, I received an email forwarded by NC State IEEE robotics team asking for mentors helping a FTC team that will be hosted at NC State campus. What a blessing! I did not go out to a team but a team comes to my place. I went to their first meeting, and I felt very good at the environment. Look forward to the new competition season, a lot to be learned.
