From FIRST Inspires:

This year, Off-Season Events for all programs begin July 1, including FIRST Robotics Competition. To help the FIRST community with planning, and especially so with respect to public health, we are developing cross-program guidance and resources for Off-Season Events, defined as a gathering organized by a Host Organization that utilizes FIRST program content for which there is a participation fee or sponsorship funding. The Host Organization will need to complete an event notice for all Off-Season Events and an updated agreement if borrowing FIRST Robotics Competition equipment from FIRST HQ.

For more information on Off-Season Events, read our FAQ. More guidance and details to assist in the planning of Off-Season Events will be available on or before May 28 in the FIRST Resource Library.

We are thrilled to announce the FIRST Chesapeake Skills Competition Winners and Finalists for the Infinite Recharge at Home Challenge!! 🤩🥳 Congratulations!!

  • FRC Team 401: Copperhead Robotics (Christiansburg, Virginia)- Cadmium Winner

Interested in building your government relations and STEM advocacy program? Register now for the upcoming zoom Virginia Advocacy Conference! Sunday April 18th, 2:00pm-5:30pm.

Virginia Advocacy Conference (VAAC) is an opportunity for FRC and FTC teams across the Commonwealth of Virginia to gain all the tools to start political advocacy with their team, learn about advocacy objectives, as well as having some social time with other teams due to the lack of opportunities to meet with other teams in person this year!

Program will include best practices and toolkits to plan your team's STEM/FIRST advocacy at the state and local levels. Featuring Dean Roberts (Rolls Royce and chair, FIRST Chesapeake), Mark Smith (Exec Director, Government Relations, George Mason University) and a 4-team student panel (including Team 422 The Mech Tech Dragons, 1086 Blue Cheese, and Talon 540). Games and prizes, plus student networking! Open to all interested FTC/FRC participants! Register here or on the va-advocacy.com website.
