There are now TWO separate livestream links- one for each division- on Youtube!
If you are watching on a computer, you can switch between divisions on one screen, but this is not possible on a phone.

Once again, funding to FRC teams in Hampton Roads has been made available through a generous contribution by Newport News Shipbuilding. The following teams received awards to help defray travel and lodging costs for the 2019 FRC Season:
Newport News Shipbuilding is the sole designer, builder and refueler of U.S. Navy aircraft carriers and one of two providers of U.S. Navy submarines. With approximately $4 billion in revenues and more than 20,000 employees, they are the largest industrial employer in Virginia and the largest shipbuilding company in the United States. Newport News Shipbuilding is also home to the Apprentice School, where they are committed to developing core leadership principles in all apprenticeship students along with the character and technical competence.
Lockheed Martin, a FIRST Chesapeake sponsor, has launched a new scholarship program to provide opportunities to students who want to build their talents and change the world!
Beginning in 2019, they are awarding 200 scholarships of $10,000 per student – renewable each year. The program will continue to add up to 200 new recipients each year, and will be open to individuals studying engineering or computer science that demonstrate financial need and come from underrepresented or underserved communities.
The scholarship program doesn’t end with a check. Mentoring opportunities will be a key component of the program, and recipients will also be eligible for Lockheed Martin internship opportunities following their freshman year in college.
Application closes March 12, 2019.
