Improving FIRST Design Book Submission
Authors: Wilczynski, Slezycki
The book "FIRST Robots: Behind the Design" profiles award winning teams from the FIRST Robotics Competition. The selected teams won one of the engineering design awards during the FIRST Robotics Competition season. Teams were selected for publication based on the quality of their submitted images and text that collectively told the story how the team progressed from idea to realization of their design. The purpose of the article is to inform teams how to increase the competitiveness of their submissions. Images submitted for the 2006 competition will be presented to illustrate the types of graphics that are most appealing for publication. Examples will be presented to highlight how an effective "design summary" can be created to best tell the team's story for building their FRC robot.
