2017 FIRST Robotics Competition Teaser Hype Overload animated

Hype, hype, HYPE! A trainload of hype! A mountain of hype! The ne plus ultra of hype! Un Festival Branché!

If you prefer your hype overloaded, with the sour cream, the cheddar cheese, and the bacon, you’ve got it!


As we have said before, At 7PM Eastern Time on Tuesday, September 20th, we’ll be releasing the 2017 Season Teaser on the FIRST Facebook Page. Along with the teaser, we’ll be releasing Downloadable Content (DLC) Pack 1, a free package of digital goodies related to the season you might find fun and useful.

After the teaser release, at 7:30PM Eastern, check out the Teaser Aftershow with our friends from GameSense! You can find out how to watch and participate here. Special guest, FIRST Friend, FRC Mentor, and many other things as well, Emma Dumont!


Great reasons to get the team together for a pre-season party!

And keep in mind, sometimes…just sometimes…the hype is real.

I know that some schools block facebook on their networks.  Are their alternatives links for those teams to be able to watch the teaser?
