FRC Team Advocate Introduction

Jun 16, 2015 Written by FIRST Staff

Today's blog comes from Jamee Luce, the new FRC Team Advocate.

What happens after you take the Red Pill?

It’s pretty much just like The Matrix…well, FIRST doesn’t run on the energy from humans plugged into a big generator, but you get the idea. And I haven’t been to see the Oracle yet, but I know my chance is coming. Maybe I am getting ahead of myself.

Two Championship Survey Results and Path Forward

May 15, 2015 Written by FIRST Staff

As many of you know, after we announced that FIRST would be moving to having two Championships starting in 2017, we released a survey to FIRST Robotics Competition teams on this change.

7,355 individuals responded. This represents about 10% or so of the total number of mentors and students we have in FRC. About 75% of the 7,355 provided a team number, and those respondents were from 1,501 teams, about 52% of the total number of FRC teams we had in 2015.
