This can be an amazing experience, you will learn so much and compete at the highest level!

First, get your computer set up with the software you will need, and download all of the premodeled parts (engineers don't make everything, lots of parts are done for them so they can focus on custom work).  http://students.autodesk.com/?nd=kitofparts_view

Then, we need to identify parts of the robot and the functions of those parts.  Many are in the FIRST Kit of Parts (KOP), but some are not.  We will start with the list, and identify them in the bot (or not!).  

You will quizzed/tested on your knowledge of parts and their function.
