There were three factors, and I would like some help off line:
- Vandalism – a relief custodian left our room door open
- Students don't listen to me
- An ego or two got in the way
If students would stop working before they had to leave and put things away the vandalism would not have happened. I have been trying to make that happen since we got our first parts.
I'm thinking about a point system and that you have to earn the privilege to build.
It has been suggested strongly to me that I structure the team similar to athletics, but I want students to have the option of coming and trying robots with us and then either staying or walking away. In other words, I would like to be structured more like a chess club and less like a sports team.
