A practice field is a great way to test your robot and learn the game.
If you can’t build a full field, then consider some of the options below.
- Partial Field with Driver Stations and Side Walls
- Key Field Elements
- Partial Field Elements
- Taped – Off areas in an open area of the school to simulate the field size
When making field elements, take special care to be accurate to replicate the official parts. Slight differences in measurements in key areas can make a significant difference in robot performance or scoring capability when you get to the competition sites.
Where possible, try to duplicate the field elements and field conditions for sizes, lighting and other special conditions.
