2018 FIRST Robotics Competition Kickoff – FIRST POWER UP
FIRST POWER UP Kickoff
Finally, the day has arrived. The FRC kickoff event. Today is the day that we discovered what the teaser video back on September 14, 2017 was all about. Today is also the day that kicks off the FRC build season for the 2018 FIRST Robotics Competition.
The day started off with getting up early and heading to Mountlake Terrace High School for the official kickoff. I love this event. Many of the teams in my local area come together and we all get to catch up, enjoy the kickoff event and learn basically what are lives will revolve around for the next six weeks until we have to bag and tag our robots before the competitions begin. After the kickoff event, all of the CyberKnights (this is the name of my team at King’s High School in Shoreline) headed back to school and began our brainstorming session to begin preparations for the robot that my team will use during this season. This makes for a long day but one that everyone on the team cherishes. This is FRC and the time and effort that we all put forth over the next few months is rewarded with friendship, awesome teamwork and an amazing robot. As always, our main theme is, “gracious professionalism.” I will stop here for now and let you enjoy the kickoff video. I will keep you updated throughout the season and bring you along with me during the FIRST POWER UP 2018 Season.
