Create Your Robot Webpage!

We have just set up an ftp site where you can upload your team's PowerPoint presentation, animation, and robot video. This is not a graded assignment, but I highly encourage everyone to do this. We will keep this on the maelabs server as long as we can, and can  serve as a professional style link on your resume.

Rule Clarification

Some sections have been have specified the Farm Area as both sides of the table, while some have specified it as only under the starting areas. After checking the posted rules, it was deemed that the exact area was not clearly specified. Accordingly, the decision has been made that balls on both sides of the table can score 1 point and are part of the Farm Area.
