Hello Team 4293!
As many of you heard at the kickoff meeting there will be a CAD class on Saturday, October 5th from 2-5pm. The goal of this class is to begin familiarizing students with software we will be using extensively throughout the build season. The class will be held at the Higlands Ranch Library, in the Shea B room. Directions to both the library and the Shea B room will be below. Also: parents please be advised the library closes promptly at 5pm, so please plan to pick up your students at that time.
We ask that each student bring their own laptop with creo installed to the class. Directions for installing creo are below. If you do not have access to a laptop please let us know and we we will work something out. Also, if you are bringing your own laptop, please bring it fully charged. The amount of outlets will be limited, so the longer you can use Creo without plugging in the better.
Creo Download Instructions:
To dowload creo, go to this link: http://www.ptc.com/company/community/first/teams.htm You should see a link saying, "Register for your free copy of Creo." You are going to want to click this link and fill out the form. Note: if you have a PTC account already you still have to fill out the form, just not the last step; but, if you have a PTC account as a FIRST Student, you should be able to skip directly to the download step by opening the PDF attached below and following the Creo download instructions. For the company name please use "Young Engineers Association." We are an FRC team, our team number is 4293, and our team name is Team Komodo. Also, for those who need to create a password, it can only contain the following characters: a-z, A-Z, 0-9, _,
After you complete this, you should receive an email from PTC. This email will have a link to a PDF containing instructions on how to download Creo. I have also attached this PDF in case you do not recieve the email or you already have a PTC FIRST Student account.
Let us know if you have any questions.

Team Kickoff and FRC Kickoff
Hello Team 4293!
We are happy to announce we will have our Team Kickoff this month! We are currently scheduling the Kickoff for Saturday, September 21, time 10am-noon. The Kickoff will be held at the Machine Shop. (address below) All returning students are expected to attend so we can get a census of our veterans. We value new imput and we would love to have some new students attend. There will be an RSVP sent out via email for returning students, new students simply show up and enjoy!
We are also pleased to give an advance notice of the FRC kickoff. Now, we know its not for another 4 months (exactly 4 months that is!), but we would like to remind everyone to clear your calendars for this date. We will be assembling a group of students in December to attend the kickoff, and it is always helpful if students can attend. For more information, click the picture and it will take you to FRC's website. We will send out more information on this event as it gets closer, but for now just keep it on your radar.
