On January 9, 2016, the team learned the game for this season, many students and mentors were overwhelmed by the number of things a robot will have to do, but they are excited for the new challenges that they will face. The team started to read the rules to get a full understanding of the game. Students were split up into groups and given a section of the rules and present that in front of the team. The mentors and some of the veteran team members started to build the game pieces and do inventory of the kit of parts. Students were to reread the game manual multiple times over the weekend so that they are prepared to debate on what they robot should do.
