Welcome to the Techno Warriors Advanced #3486 Official Engineering Notebook Website!

This site’s main purpose is to serve as the Official Engineering Notebook for the team.
What is an engineering notebook? I shall explain: An Engineering Notebook is an extremely detailed, documented journal of every change made to our robot, every piece of code added or subtracted to our software, and every idea thought at the team meetings.
At this point you’re either thinking “This is amazing, their entire notebook is online for anyone in the world to see!” or “Robots? Teams? What is FIRST? How did I get here!?” To answer those who might be pondering the latter, see the FIRST website here: http://www.firstinspires.org/robotics/ftc. For more information regarding the Mississippi FTC program visit http://msftc.org.
To those who DO understand everything that I’m talking about, or if you yourself are on an FTC team or are affiliated with FIRST: To navigate this website, simply click on a month and date from the left-hand side of this page and you will be linked to an actual page from our engineering notebook! Our Notebook is edited for one week after the date printed and then the page is locked to further editing, excluding pictures, which are uploaded offsite on flickr. In accordance with FIRST’s rules for creating an engineering notebook, there are also short bios of every student member (found on the “Meet the Team” page). There are various other pages on this site, such as Chaos, which are just for fun and will not be entered into the Notebook. Typically, only the pages that have dates for titles will be printed out and placed in the Notebook.

Take a look around and enjoy your visit!

This website is used by every one of the team members, coaches, and mentors of The Techno Warriors Advanced #3486 FIRST Tech Challenge (FTC) team.

Techno Warriors Advanced, Team 3486, wants to share its knowledge and experience with fellow Mississippi teams. TWA has always had an open shop policy and that remains unchanged. However, some FTC teams are unable to travel to our Brandon location, so Team 3486 is offering to do the traveling instead. Simply call 601-421-0007 to order a Techno Warrior Minion. Don’t wait – the supply of Techno Warrior minions is limited!
