Every year for the past five seasons, we’ve hosted a live FIRST Robotics Competition kick off event here in Tampa. Because of COVID-19, in person kick off events aren’t feasible this year. However, since everyone’s already gotten their funky Kit of Parts, we already know the game – for Infinite Recharge Part Deux – and ROBOTICON will never pass on a good party, we thought it would be fun to host a livestream kick off event. It won’t be the same as past seasons, of course, but together, we can make it a good time.
Tune in January 9 at 11:30am to ROBOTICON Facebook Live or the ROBOTICON YouTube channel for a pre-kick-off chat with some of the ROBOTICON team, watch the FIRST hosted kick-off together, and then hang out afterwards to hear from local teams and guest speakers and get inspired for the new season.
If your team, coaches or mentors would like to participate in-person on our livestream during the event, complete this form by Thursday, January 7.
Our ROBOTICON Digital Infinite Recharge Livestream Kick Off event will be livestreamed from AMRoC Fab Lab and hosted in partnership with Foundation for Community Driven Innovation, PLUGHITZ Live and FIRST Looks.
