How are you social distancing?

For those teams that are already meeting, how are you maintaining physical distance while working effectively? Like how are you building while maintaining that 6 feet? Is it just 1 builder? 2 builders? Taking turns?

Thanks for your time, and stay safe! :grin:

Our school won’t let a soul on campus and that’s where all of our tools are so we are trying to convince them to let us

If you live in the US, you should not be meeting with your team in person. :slight_smile:

I am considering an autonomous fire breathing bot that will drive around the room disinfecting screwdrivers and enforcing social distancing.

Jk

I won’t be able to get to my tools and parts until July at the earliest. :frowning_face:

I live in my room with vex parts, and my teammates will be doing notebooking meanwhile. when I finish building and testing, I’ll give the bot to our coder.

Nah. You should enforce social distancing by having a van de graaff generator or something similar that shocks anyone within a 3 foot radius.

We dont even have the parts yet since we decided to go private instead of going along with our schools organization for this season. (budget is really a problem, if someone in CANADA wants to sell us parts for cheap please DM me! Or suggest a cheap site that has free shipping and is Canadian?)

If only you weren’t.

My science teacher has one of those… I’m not quite sure that’s how those work… Usually you have to be a little closer than that…

Personally, I am hoping (since my coach recently built a movable cabinet with wheels and everything that is capable of holding all of our tools and parts) that we may be able to meet up at a park or something… bring a couple folding tables… maybe some pizza… now I’m just daydreaming… Lol. (I was thinking about the end-of-the-season party that I missed :frowning_face: )

My team had 1 person to person meeting. But it was held outside, no food was shared, and since it was only 4 of us, all of us had masks and we were a good distance apart.

I thought masks just helped one from preventing the spread, not necessarily protecting a person

Ah see well I solved this problem by being a 1 person build team. You cant get covid if you dont have anyone to give it to you.

Uh… I think they decrease your chance of corona. I’m pretty sure the virus travels through the air on droplets, not as free floating particles.
