Congratulations to everyone on finishing the 2017 FIRST® STEAMWORKS build season! We trust teams have readied their contraptions and are prepared to take flight at the 2017 Orlando Regional.
Now that teams have bagged and tagged their robots and it’s time for teams to make final preparations for the FIRST Robotics Competition Orlando Regional on the University of Central Florida Campus at the CFE Arena March 9th- 11th.
To help teams get the most of the Orlando Regional and enjoy their competition and Orlando visit, we’ve prepared the 2017 Orlando Regional Team Guide, downloadable here and also sent to every Orlando Regional team coach.
The Orlando Regional is happy to have RoboShow, RoboVision, the Hall of Fame, and workshops return this year for our event. PLuGHiTz Live will also be on site on Friday, conducting interviews with teams and sponsors. Internships are again available this year for a select group of students to gain experience as ambassadors or in the audio-visual field. See our Internship section in the Team Guide for more information to relay it to your students!
Also don’t forget to tell your students to bring some extra cash to the Orlando Regional so they can purchase some FIRST Robotics and Orlando Regional swag to commemorate their time at the regional.
See you soon, at the 19th Annual Orlando Regional!
