Engineering Notebook Tips

I’m making this thread to compile tips for people who will be starting their notebooks for 2017-2018 soon (I’ll be starting mine April 22, when the game is revealed). What format do you recommend, what information should we include, etc? Thanks!

My advice: Make sure you look at the Design Award Rubric, it gives you a framework for how to construct your notebook

Open notebook… Begin writing using instructions from 5.2 (link above) go through 5.7

I think you’re correct to wait until after Worlds to start the notebook. I expect we will learn a bit more about how REC intends to treat the engineering notebook at this year’s Worlds.
