This challenge is designed for any interested team, but teams who are unable to meet in-person this year are especially encouraged to participate. One winner from each category will be selected from both FTC and FRC. The award will include recognition at the FIRST Chesapeake awards ceremonies in April, as well as a $250+ team award. Also, any materials used by FIRST Chesapeake for outreach or training will credit the team.
We know that our teams are smart, resourceful and creative. Because of this, we don't want to set too many restrictions for this challenge. Teams are invited to develop training/outreach resources for one of the following. Resources can be power points, videos, interactive games, etc. The sky is the limit!
1. New Mentors: Team develop an easy to follow mentor-training presentation for new mentors.
2. New Teams: Team create content for new teams showing how to get up and running and what to expect in a typical year.
Awards will be based upon content, clarity, artistic merit, and originality. Applications must be submitted to by 5pm, April 2nd, 2021 using the subject line: FIRST Chesapeake Starter Kit Challenge.
