Buckeyes played? That could be argued. Alabama certainly played.

Considering you saw me watch an NFL playoff game on your phone from the podium of a VEX event, you know my abilities to multitask. :rofl:

The show is actually tonight (Tuesday) at 7:00 pm. Tune in for all the fun and a good discussion about the 2021 At Home Challenges!

I just had a chance to watch through this video, great job to everybody involved!

Early on, the Ontario FIRST Team Support Slack was mentioned. I have a few questions about this Slack as it relates to the implementation of a similar resource in other locations.

  • Is this Slack endorsed by the program organizers in Ontario?
  • How was it communicated to teams?
  • Who is invited to join the Slack community? Adults/Mentors only, or are students in it as well?
  • Who manages/moderates the discussions?
  • If students are involved, how do you manage private messages and potential bullying issues?
  • Would you recommend this community resource for other regions? Does it offer significant value to Ontario FIRST teams?
