Launch your FTC FIRST FORWARD season with G-FORCE and
G-FORCE and Garrett College join forces for the FIRST FTC FREIGHT FRENZY Game Reveal
11:45 Doors Open. STEM building (access via Parking lot B on Bumble Bee Road)
12:00 Game Reveal. Twitch Stream Link. Rooms 201 and 202
12:15 Field is uncovered and open for inspection. Room 230
12:30 Tips from Head Referee Randy.
12:45 Field open for robot interaction.
2:00 Kickoff closes. Safe trip home.
After watching the game reveal at noon, FTC participants will be able to get live, hands-on, experience with a FIRST FORWARD field and game elements. Being able physically handle and manipulate game elements is the best way to jump-start robot brainstorming and devising game strategies.
ATTENTION!!!! This year, we're adding a special activity for teams...
Be one of the first to “Test Drive” your robot on the FIRST FORWARD playing field.
Every year the FTC Game Design Committee (GDC) comes up with innovative ways to tax our robot drive systems. This season, bring your existing robots to the Mountain Maryland FTC Kickoff, and you can test-drive the FIRST FORWARD playing field. Find out first-hand how well your existing drives can push, pull, lift, lower, sort, collect, eject and navigate around FIRST FORWARD field and game elements (whatever they turn out to be).
Any past or present FTC-legal robot can be tried out on the new Mountain Maryland Field.
Just bring your Robot and Driver Station. Leave your tools and parts at home.
To be able to bring your robot, we just need you to register it with us, and tell us a little about its capabilities. Go here to register your robot
