Team 1700 has decided to start a new project that we would like to call Fiveawesomerobots! The idea is to have five different FIRST robotics teams that will take turns vlogging throughout the build and competition season. Each team will be assigned to one of the days Monday-Friday, such that each Monday a video will be posted by team X and each Tuesday a video will be posted by team Y. The videos would be posted on YouTube, and the five teams would all share the account so that the videos will be in one place.
Now, if your team is interested let us know! We are hoping to be able to get a variety of FIRST teams from across the United States (maybe even around the world) to participate in this project. The goal would be to share what teams are working on in a way that is easy to find, and would allow concepts to be explained and given feedback to. The email address that we can be contacted at is firstname.lastname@example.org and the YouTube channel is youtube.com/fiveawesomerobots.
If you don’t think your team would like to participate let us know if you have any feedback on this idea. We would love to know what other members of the FIRST community would like to see out of this project.
I like the sound of this, but unfortunately I’m not in charge of this stuff on the team. (It doesn’t say blogging under my username.) I will be emailing the man in charge and getting his opinion, though. I’d like to get our team to do it.
Team 295 would be thrilled to participate in something like this. I’m not quite sure what constitutes vlogging and what to include, but I’m sure we’ll work it out.

Some of the students from The Flying Platypi are interested in the project. They are having a meeting soon and will bring this up during the meeting.
This is a great idea and we’ll try to get back to you!
We have found all the teams we need and the first video is up! This week we will be posting intro videos for all of the teams, and this Saturday the real vlogging will start at kickoff. We are trying to see how we could incorporate other teams that are interested but for now here is the link to the channel
