TEAM 1489A Bull Run Robotics 1489 VEX Sack Attack Season My Job: I worked on organizing the engineering notebook, building and operating the arm during competition. Team History: Western Gainesville MS: 12 th place, Design Award PWCS Forest Park HS: 10 th place, Design Award VEX World Anaheim, California: 45 th place
WHAT IS THE ENGINEERING NOTEBOOK? Any ideas?
The Engineering Notebook An engineering notebook is a full recording of a team's robotics season; your design process. Keeping up with the engineering notebook is vital to the team and judges at competitions. What you record in there is helpful for when your team needs to look back on a certain day, find certain measurements, look back on past designs to improve, etc. Plus, a detailed and organized engineering notebook can bring your team to States/Worlds.
The Contents Requirements Biographies: Individual and Team Table of Contents Entries -Task & Reflection -Notes -CAD/Sketches -Program samples -Pictures Other Tips Use tabs to divide the notebook and mark important dates and notes. Use a black ink pen Use a pencil for sketching Write in all caps. Paste pictures well and outline with a black ink pen or marker. Get creative and keep it neat! Make sure every team member works on the notebook. Teamwork is ESSENTIAL.
Entry Examples How to write an entry
Black ink pen Date Day # Start Time End Time Tasks & Reflections Event Location Mistake crossed out with ONE line and initialed. Crossed out the unused space Writer(s) Signature Entry signed off by another team member (leader maybe)
Sketch drawn with a pencil. Date and Day number is continued. Description written in pen. -Specific measurements are included -Drawn to scale -Easily understandable
