Registration for the 23rd annual BattleCry@WPI will open this Friday, April 14 at noon. This is open to any FRC team interested in competing.
BC23 is a two-day event (June 3-4) hosted at WPI. It will feature all the lights, sounds, and excitement of a regional-level competition for only $500. Included in your registration fee is guaranteed entry to the playoffs, 10 event t-shirts, and fun-titivies!
Registration fee will be reduced to $425 for any team who provides two full-day volunteers for the new WPI FLL International Open on June 9-11.
Even if your team does not wish to compete, you can volunteer (link to be added soon!). We are always looking for new people to fill new roles, so if it’s your first time volunteering, you want to try a new job, or you are looking at how to advance in your volunteering skills, this is the place to sign up! We have experienced folks leading the charge and ready to train new people and new positions to help New England and FIRST build their volunteer base!
Looking forward to celebrating 23 years of BattleCry@WPI with the best event yet!
We are evaluating with Res Services but I would say it’s unlikely.
There are a lot of logistical, practical, and safety concerns associated with a bunch of kids and adults from a bunch of different teams on the same floor in shared bathrooms. There are accessibility and inclusion issues too, like all the beds are lofted making it a challenge for mobility-impaired folks and ensuring the safety and comfort of non-binary or transgender participants within the often expected (and HS required) male/female designated floors and bathrooms.
