Engineering Portfolio

One of the most important things to work on if you want to win awards is your Engineering Portfolio and Notebook. Your Engineering Portfolio should give the judges a “taste” of your Engineering Notebook. These documents should tell the story of your team through the current season. This is done by documenting both your team meetings and the progress of your robot. Judges don’t want to see a perfect notebook, but a work in progress. We make sure to write down all of our goals and then reflect on our successes and failures.

We have posted some of our notebooks and portfolios in the order we created them. In each new notebook, new goals are made and our teams direction often shifts.

Please enjoy these notebooks and portfolios from successful past events. We hope they will help teams looking to improve their notebook writing skills. Specific portfolio/notebook requirements by award can be found in Game Manual 1. We know our notebook isn’t perfect, and it improves as we gain experience in FTC. If you would like to share ideas on how we can improve our notebook, please reach out through our contact form!


Below you will find a copy of our first-ever engineering portfolio along with its corresponding engineering notebook. For some reason many “l’s” disappeared when we redacted it and converted it to .pdf, we have no clue why… but you’ll get the idea. This portfolio helped us to win many awards including 2 Inspire Awards and is used for training in Utah Region workshops.
