2015-2016 FTC Season Begins! (NYU-Poly Kickoff)
FTC is kicking the season off with the First Tech RES-Q Challenge! This past Saturday, September 12th, we attended the FTC Kickoff at NYU-Poly where we got to see the 2015-2016 FTC challenge. Prior to the kickoff, we attended one of the workshops that was being held at NYU, and got to learn about the new Legacy system that is being implemented this year- we can’t wait to try it out! We then got a first look at the game animation and game field. We are so excited for this year! The RES-Q game is incredibly dynamic and challenging, and it might even be the best FTC challenge yet! After the video release, we hosted a workshop, as we have done for many years before this at NYU-Poly. This year, we talked about Engineering Notebook. In our workshop, primarily for rookie teams, we spoke to how important Engineering Notebooks are for your team, as well as there importance in FTC competitions. We got to meet new people and team members – one of the parts we look forward to when holding a rookie workshop! We also loved sharing our knowledge and advice as a veteran team, and we will be keeping in contact with many of the attending teams. The season is off to a fantastic start!
