Re: College FIRST Programs

WPI participates a lot with FIRST.

A lot of students will help mentor the mass academy team, 190.
There are several other teams in Worcester as well that are sponsored by WPI or have college mentors there.
The school also is hosting the WPI regional starting this year.
There are a few college VEX teams starting here this year.
WPI also hosts Robonatica, the the state FLL championship here.

Re: College FIRST Programs

UT Dallas does not officially support any specific team or FIRST itself besides hosting the FLL / BEST Tournaments from time to time.

We have a robotics team affiliated with the university (a club) but they are more battle bots people so most FIRSTers usually just hear about me and I give them info and they look at 1745 or other teams near them that they would like to help out with.

However, some of us are trying to get the university more involved with FIRST to sponsor a local team or something so we'll see but there is no official support, just unofficial via UTD students.

Thanks for posting Kevin! Currently there are tentative plans to help out at the FTC state tournament in March if we're needed.

RPI holds an FLL practice event sometime in December. The way it worked out is it was the half way point between the regional and championships of Massachusetts. Our team competed in Massachusetts because it was a lot closer than Rochester (second nearest competition to Albany.) RPI also holds a variety of summer camps run by local teachers to encourage engineering in students, however these camps tend not to attract local kids, the majority of attendees were from downstate somewhere. RPI also holds a pre-ship exhibition, and open practice anytime on their full-scale (but non-operational) field at the RPI tech valley campus (near HVCC.) I don't know of any current mentoring of teams, but i know two important guys over there, plus a random professor whose son is on our team.

Siena College also holds NXT workshops over the summer, and from the feedback, they were much more successful then the RPI camp. Chris, if you go to RPI, you should stop in sometime, we're only 5 - 10 minutes away.
