Our team was wondering if we could set our robot on the plank of wood and then when you say go, have it split into 2 parts that we can control with the same controller?

Hi cshuman,  Welcome to BEST robotic forums.

My advice is that your approach sounds fine, because your robot does not actually "split into 2 parts", it sounds like it is just changing size and shape, which is permitted by rule 1.3.2   2

 - Rule 1.3.2.2  "Once the match begins, the machine may unfold and change size through its own power."

Does that sound like it matches your intent?

    A reminder that this is not the official Q&A, and so has no authority to make rulings on questions; but anyone on any team, or in any BEST hub can give advice. 
 This is not the official Q&A, but I can point you to it.
