What Life Skills Have You Learned From Robotics?

What important life skills have you learned from robotics?

For me, it was to have very, very quick reflexes, and to not rage whenever something doesn’t work after hundreds (maybe thousands okay probably not that much) of tries. (I’m talking about autonomous of course.)

I have learned valuable social and teamwork skills. Not only have I learned how to work as a team, I have learned how to work with other teams.

I have also learned how to stay up all night and go to an event without feeling sleepy. Also, I have learned how, as a team, how to irk my coach. I have also learned how to suddenly lower my expectations after a weekend of building.

Man when I started VRC I would get so stressed out over the tiniest things like our game auton or something didn’t work at a league. a league like a week into the season when only half of the teams could do anything besides drive.

Also this.

I learned that you have to highlight your most significant attributes, while also accepting your flaws. This is the strategy I used during judging interviews, and it got me three awards this season. Our robot’s intakes may suck but here’s a conveyor that can shoot from almost 3 feet away from the goal! Works everytime.

I learned to take screenshots of the code in case you change the code thinking that it will make it better, it makes it worse, and you mess up all of the numbers when you attempt to reprogram it.
