The Kickoff for the 2014 FIRST season is coming up. If you are going, you need to be at Blanchett by 6:00am on Saturday, January 3rd. We are going up together – either by carpool or bus – to Mountlake Terrace High School for the regional event. The doors at Mountlake open at 6:00am, but the presentation starts at 7:15 am.
This is a big deal, with high schools from all around the Puget Sound area attending. There is a live presentation from the founders of FIRST, and details of this year’s game will be revealed. There will be break-out brainstorming sessions after the live presentations, where kids from all the different schools will share ideas for the upcoming season. Then, we will receive our kit-of-parts, the base package of parts for building this year’s robot. We’ll bring the kit-of-parts home to Blanchet when the event completes.
Looking forward to seeing you on Saturday.
