Communication Tools

For the CWU GEARUP Robotics program we will use a number of communication tools to connect teams, coaches and mentors together.


SLACK is an innovative communication tool used by most of the top engineering (technology) companies in the world to help Engineering teams to collaborate on projects and get them completed fast. Channels and integrations remove friction between teams and functions, helping you go from kickoff to completion time of a robot in less time.
