Kickoffs & Robot in 3 Days

Blog Date: Wednesday, January 9, 2013 - 16:26


Last Saturday, a record 83 FRC Kickoffs took place simultaneously around the world. A big thanks to our Kickoff Coordinators and all the other volunteers who made them happen! You are fine examples of one of the greatest strengths in FIRST – our volunteers.
