With our FIRST season cut short by the COVID-19 pandemic, we thought we’d put our shared downtime to good use by inviting teams to gather round a virtual campfire and tell us and our virtual social distancing campers their stories.

We’re inviting teams from all programs – FIRST LEGO League Jr, FIRST LEGO League, FIRST Tech Challenge and FIRST Robotics Competition – to send us your guest blog posts (500 words max), photos ( 1 MB max), videos of your robot, instructional segments, news about your alumni, coaches and mentors,  interpretive dance or anything you feel would help uplift our FIRST community and fans.

Tell us about any special programs or events you’re planning later on, too, so we can include that with your contribution.  We already know of at least one summer scrimmage on the calendar, by  FRC team 5276, the Edgar Allan Ohms.  We’re sure there are others as well.

We trust you know what’s appropriate and look forward to seeing your contributions and sharing them on the ROBOTICON website and our social media. We’ll also share as many of them as possible at ROBOTICON 2020 in October.

Thanks for helping keep the Florida FIRST family connected, and sharing stories to tell around our virtual FIRST Campfire!
