12.4: Analysis and Reflection

Once the competition is over, students should provide analysis and reflection on their experiences by completing the following essay type questions in their engineering notebook.

  • What was your favorite part of the competition robotics experience?
  • Did the matches play out like you expected?
  • What would you improve about your robot design?  Would you make any major changes or only minor changes?
  • What would you improve about the design process if you had to start over?  Were there things you wish you had spent more time on?
  • What was the most important life skill you learned during this process?  Why was it important to your experience?
