Greetings MA FTC Team Mentors!
In planning for the Off-Season Event supported by our Boston Tech Interns we are reaching out to get a sense of how many of you will be interested in participating.
- Date – August 20th (if we have better than expected team interest, we may look to extend event through August 21 to accommodate)
- Location – MIT Hockey Rink, the site of what inspired FIRST Dr. Woodie Flower’s 270 Finals Competition, now 2.007!
- Time: – Full day event, start and end times TBD
- 32 Teams – We are looking to hold a 32-team event, but this could change depending on team interest. We will be opening event up to FTC teams in the other New England states but will give preference to our MA teams.
- Cost – $150 to $175 range
- Event Activities – In addition to super fun robot play, we are looking to incorporate the following:
- Keynote speakers
- College and Sponsor Booths
- Tours of campus and labs
- Game changes (adding fun to how the game is played!)
If you can please reply to this email with a “yes!” or “maybe” or “would love to but unfortunately can’t” by COB Tuesday July 19, we would greatly appreciate it.
Stay tuned for additional event details and Teasers from our Boston Interns coming soon.
We hope you are enjoying your summer!
Deb and Wayne.
