For all San Diego FTC League teams: RoBowties 6137 will be holding a Robot Workshop next week on Monday Jan 16 (Martin Luther King Day) from 1-4pm so if you'd like some help troubleshooting a hardware or software problem, or want access to a full field to try your autonomous program or practice driving, come and bring your robot. We have limited tools here and no drill press or bandsaw so bring whatever you think you'll need. We are located in the University City neighborhood - if you're interested in participating, RSVP to RoBowties at email@example.com to get directions and details and so we can get a count.

Fortunately FTC #4251 Cougar Robotics gathered information on common servo stall currents back in 2014:

Dean’s List Candidates – Plan ahead. Dean’s List submissions need to be complete by January 15, 2017. Interviews for Dean’s List will take place at the League Tournaments on Feb 4 & 5.
Dean’s List Interviewers – We still need volunteers to be interviewers for Dean’s List. We still need the following volunteers: 3 for Gauss, 2 for Descartes, 3 for Euclid and 0 for Turing (YAY! Turing). No experience is required!
There are a number of FIRST-affiliated internships available to high school and/or college students at the FIRST alumni webpage
In particular with a deadline Jan 3rd (!), there are internships available at Apple for high school sophomores and juniors - so take a look at the list!
