We believe a strong culture of team safety is important. While building robots is fun and highly educational, it can also be dangerous if you are not properly prepared. Besides, being safe while building robots encourages students to be safe in their careers and lives. Safety isn’t just a word – it’s a lifestyle.

Because of this, we’ve made available all these resources to anyone who wants them.
