5.4: S̶t̶e̶a̶l̶i̶n̶g̶ Scouting Robot Ideas

I, speaking for the entire CAD subteam, can attest to the fact that some ideas we come with here in CAD are ideas that we stea- I mean scout from the internet. This is a tool that you can employ if you need some help brainstorming future ideas. Multiple universities from across the country partake in something called Robot in 3 Days, or as it's known for short, RI3D. This is a fun event-within an event that sees these universities robotics teams (or simply their engineering students) building a robot for that year's FIRST game in 72 hours. While this seems nearly impossible, it is not, and you can get many ideas from this. Just search up RI3D and you can find a wealth of ideas for the robot. Besides this, if you search up FIRST robot ideas in general, you are bound to find at least something that may pique your interest.
