#FRCFriday

Every Friday, there is a few of us on Twitter that do something we previously called #FIRSTFriday. You take a picture of yourself with a FIRST related shirt (FRC, FLL, FTC, ANYTHING), post a TwitPic link, and add the hashtag #FIRSTFriday. We've changed #FIRSTFriday to #FRCFriday (because it's shorter, and there are less people using that hashtag), but it's still any FIRST related shirt. We'd like to have more people doing this with us.

Every Friday, if you'd like to join in on the fun, take a picture of you/your FIRST related shirt for that Friday, and add the hashtag #FRCFriday! If you don't have a Twitter, it's a great was to meet some people from other teams and spread ideas with your other friends in FIRST. I can't wait to see everyone that joins in!

Re: #FRCFriday

Great idea Zach, sounds like it is going to be fun.

Couple ideas to toss out there...

How about things other than shirts? Buttons, hats, other team icons?
How about posting a portion of a team's item and see if people can guess what it is and which team it belongs to?
FRCFriday trivia question, post a trivia question and have people guess the answer.

I like your original concept so maybe the other ideas become another hashtag.

Now, time to go dig out a shirt....

Good ideas! While I'm going to run out of different shirts eventually, I do have plenty of buttons. I can't wait to see what next week brings :D

Re: #FRCFriday

Not sure who all is following FRCFriday on Twitter, so I thought I would give the folks on CD a crack at the fun...

#FRCFriday - What Is It - Obsolete for the last couple years, this item was golden in its day




#FRCFriday - Name That Bot - Was cruising CD for a good bot picture and found this gem, can you guess the team?




#FRCFriday - TRIVIA - Do you know who was the first student human player in the yellow position? Think way back to the 1v1v1 days.

#FRCFriday - TRIVIA - Lego Mindstorm kits are used by FLL teams. How did they get the name Mindstorm?

#FRCFriday - Name That Bot - This robot became famous nationally this year, can you name it?



#FRCFriday - What Is It - Think you know what KOP component this is?

It's team 623 (Cougar Robotics) which performed in front of President Obama during his announcement of the "Education to Innovate" campaign.
