Team 5199 is hosting the second annual Summer Series this year, which will take place from July 26th - July 30th. The Summer Series consists of a week of free, virtual workshops covering topics from all realms of FRC, ranging from basic manufacturing to empowerment and outreach. These 40 minute workshops give an opportunity for presenters to share valuable information and viewpoints on topics and for attendees to increase their knowledge base and gain valuable insight into how different teams approach different issues. For our second year, we are opening workshop slots that we would like to find teams from all over to fill!
There will be 2-3 workshops scheduled a day, with the preliminary schedule having workshops and panels scheduled in the following time slots (all times are in Pacific time):
Session 1, 5 - 5:40 PM
Session 2, 5:50 - 6:30 PM
Session 3, 6:40 - 7:20 PM*
*Not all dates will have 3 workshops scheduled
For those who would like to see how the event was run previously, here is a link to a playlist of last year’s Summer Series workshops and panels:
We had amazing presentations from teams 3476, 3309, 2485, 1622 previously and are looking forward to expanding our group of presenters further with the open application this year. If you or your team has a passion for certain topics, we strongly encourage you to share your knowledge with others by applying to present a workshop for this year’s event. Here’s the link to the application, which is due by midnight Pacific time on Saturday, July 10th: Summer Series Presenter Application
We will be continuing to post to this thread with additional information on the workshop schedule, team line-up, and livestream, so stay tuned for the news!
