Q: Where do we practice?
Leominster Youth Robotics has practice space for teams at the Gallagher building. Most teams practice at least once a week, depending on when the participants can meet. As tournaments get closer, teams meet more often to work in the research portion of the project, sometimes at a parents house, or at the Gallagher building.
Q: What happens at a tournament?
Robotic Tournaments are exciting events. Usually there is a preliminary seeding round followed by an elimination round. Teams will have time to make modifications to their robots if there needs to be changes. All teams have a Pit area to display their project work and team information. There are also sessions for technical and project judging. There is music playing and the tournament organizers keep everyone entertained. Most tournaments last several hours.
