They should check to make sure all materials are in good working order. This could be established as a “Start Up” routine: check the Code Base build, make sure the Battery and the device are charged, and launch VEXcode GO.

support to groups that need assistance in launching VEXcode GO. Remind students to check to make sure that the cables are inserted into the correct ports.
- Establish a consistent “start up” practice as routine before working with VEX GO. If it is consistently implemented, students will take ownership of this routine and it will foster good practices for independent robotics activities.
