Jeeves....

It is definately 3 kids per bot and 1 bot per team....

You also need an Advisor for each bot but the industry partner can go across multiple teams...

We were going to have a dad of a student be the second team advisor and another dad of a student be the industry advisor for both teams.

We could only do 2 bots with 6 kids plus me and 2 parents.

I checked on it so believe me on this one.

It was the same out in Ohio at DTMA this year... they used to allow multiple bots but changed it over this year.

I spoke with Shannon Sweatman of the NRL today, and was told that a team could have multiple bots as long as they do not interfere with the flow of the competition. This was in reference to our team of 4 with two robots. You can PM me for her contact info.

It's not like it's the same robot.
It could beat black mamba because they were able to make the weapon go fast, but at nrl's they had the weapon looking like it was going super slow.

It isn't easy to make a champion robot.
I don't think it's necessary to go with basic designs like drum and beater anymore.
After this are we going to see more robots turning out like the brain? Or are people going to look passed it?
