Plan the project l.jpg
Plan the Project

  • WHAT will we accomplish?

  • HOW will we accomplish it?

  • WHO will complete the tasks?

  • WHEN will tasks be completed?

  • WHAT resources are needed?

Plan the project11 l.jpg
Plan the Project

WHAT will we accomplish?

  • Mission/ Key Result Statement

    • Write down what your robot will do (Important for documentation!)

    • Example

      DOur mission is to Win!

      C Our mission is to build a robot that will score points by moving all black ping pong balls into the gutter and placing the orange foam ball in the basket.

Plan the project12 l.jpg
Plan the Project

HOW will we accomplish our mission?

  • Strategy Statement

    • Write down how your robot will perform the task (Important for documentation!)

    • Example

      DOur strategy is to Win!

      C Our strategy is to use one robot that will scoop up the black ping pong balls and lower them into the gutter. Our other robot will use a arm to grab the orange ball then search for the basket’s post and place the orange ball in the basket.
