Pope John XXIII High School in Sparta, New Jersey has competed in FTC Robotics for four years. In the 2008/09 season they were a winning alliance partner at the New Jersey Championships and they placed second as a captain team in the New York City championships. They were ranked 8th in their division at the World Championships that season. In the 2009/10 season, they fielded two competitive teams: Team 247 and Team 248. Team 248 won the New Jersey State Championships as captain team, and Team 247 won the New York City Championships as captain team. Thus both teams qualified for the World Championships. In the 2010/11 season they expanded to three teams, and their new team (4391) qualified for Worlds that season. Because of their success, many teams ask them questions about many topics: "Where did you get that nice rolling cart?", "Why don't you use gears on the wheels?" etc. Those questions were the inspiration for this book. FTC Robotics is one of the most complex high school level activities in existence, but there is no central source of information to help new teams get up to speed or veteran teams improve their game. This volume is meant to fill that gap and help level the playing field.
