What word/phrase is most often heard when your team is working on your ROV?


Which job or thing your team has to do is the hardest? Why?

It was hard to have to stop working on our ROV this last spring. We had a bunch of Seniors that would have been so amazing at Internationals. However, we all switched over to the ROADS on Mars competition and actually won one of the missions objectives. We built Mars in Minecraft and landed a Rover.
