The Panther Process
We always start our designs with Planning. This process takes multiple weeks and is repeated multiple times throughout the Panther Process.
After we prototype and program, we then start working to Perfect our design to get ready to compete.
The Prototyping stage is the most complicated stage of the process. This stage is where we care less about perfection and more about what works and what doesn't.
The practice stage comes after all of our building is complete. However, once we start practicing, we don't stop.
After we prototype our designs, we get started on programming which is one of the most important parts of our process. We always go by the rule, "An average robot can be made great with great programming."
After all of the steps are complete, we go to multiple tournaments and perform to our best efforts.
