Winnovation Summer 2014 Training Schedule

Mondays 6pm – 7pm followed by fun & games

During the summer we will meet on Monday nights at the Bot Shop at 6pm for training.  All team members, but especially rookies, are encouraged to attend as many of the sessions as you can.  After the training we may have a BRIEF business meeting and then we’ll have a fun activity such as Frisbee or softball.

First two weeks after September kickoff we will do machine and shop “certifications” for anyone who will be machining parts.  All team members must have attended the summer session or have an overview during the first two weeks after kickoff.
