On Friday, September 7th, we held out first training day for new members! During the meeting, freshmen went to different stations to learn the basics of working with Vex.
Incoming members learned how to run a simple program through a VEX cortex. President William Gardner, above, taught best wiring practices
Other new members brushed up on their documentation skills with an engineering notebook focused activity. They practiced isometric drawing, then learned about the engineering design process, while studying how to properly write a notebook entry.
Of course, no training day is complete without building, and there was plenty of that. Co-President Eliana Bower taught new members how to use a few common tools. The freshmen attempted to construct a simple frame in order to learn about different types of screws and nuts.
