Edison and Franklin need your help

The FIRST Tech Challenge World Championship event is still in need of some volunteers. In particular we are looking for students to work half-days as field resetters. If you are interested in working on the Edison and Franklin fields with us on Thursday and Friday, please register in the Volunteer Information Management System (VIMS) - https://my.usfirst.org/vims and choose FTC as your program, then select Field Reset as the position.


You can count on a few 1038 students for field reset - 6 or more. We will register in VIMS by tomorrow.


Initially our team didn’t have a spot to compete at the Championship, but we reserved hotels and plane flights because we all still wanted to get in the experience, including workshops and volunteering. I’ll find out if any of the students who won’t be very involved with our team competing are interested in volunteering. We had a blast at the FTC Tournament in February, and I know some others were disappointed that they hadn’t signed up. When is the deadline for volunteers to register for the Championship?

We would like them to register in VIMS as soon as possible. I will update this thread with our current needs after a teleconference tonight. THANKS EVERYONE!

We need people to be able to commit to working both days, but for a half-day session. In other words, we need you for both Thurs and Fri but you can choose if you want the morning or afternoon shifts.

Please sign up in VIMS as soon as possible, indicating in the comments field what times (AM or PM) you would like to work.

We will make selections based on your preferences as much as we are able, on a first-come, first-served basis. Thank you for your support of FTC!

If any adults on your teams also wish to sign up, please have them get into VIMS soon so that we can fill our slots - we have other positions still available!
