Our Ideas and Additional Information:
We would like a Work Boot to be incorporated with the robot.
Make the Boot look like part of the robot and technology built
The base of the robot will always be the same style, the bumpers will always be red or blue (see pictures below)
We want the number of the robot on the bumpers (8634)
Maybe somehow incorporate shoe laces into it tied and untied
Mostly red and black colors but shade of blue will be fine also
Bootstrap meaning, please read
It's taking what you HAVE and creating what you need in life. lol. WE (as individuals) are the perfect examples of bootstrapping.
To Bootstrap is to pull oneself up by his/her own strings. Not to say that we don't have or ever need help but for those without boots, can't pull themselves up, so the theme behind this team is to give "boots" to the bootless (rural teams) and watch them create magic with what they can do ..hence the term "pull yourself up by your own bootstraps" If you give us the boots (the opportunity) we can handle the straps (working hard at being successful) then can then in turn pull themselves up and others around them by paying it forward, giving others "boots" for the frontlines of life. Thats what FIRST and engineering does. Teaches kids to overcome adversity (through robots) and soar/win in life.
in the engineering world . ..Create a life Where you make the rules & make your own destiny.
Bootstrapping is pulling oneself up by their own strings.
