2018 FRC “Power Up” Kickoff!

2018 Power Up logoTeam 4549 attended FIRST FRC Kickoff at the University of Minnesota on Saturday January 6, 2018. We learned a lot! We’re gearing up and build season has begun:

Here are the videos about this year’s competition Power Up, if you want to get familiar:

More details from Ms. Anderson:

Hey everyone!  Build season for us starts at tomorrow’s practice.

We had a great group of people on kickoff day, and got a ton out of the strategy session put on by the MN GoFirst crew.

Our meeting tomorrow will be a strategy session.  We’ll watch the kickoff videos together, and then Sommerdai, Christa, Clare, Eddie and Audrey will share what we learned, and will help to lead a white-board discussion.  Even if you don’t plan to do any building, your thoughts are valuable.
