Join The Blue Alliance and FIRSTCast tomorrow for our LIVE! (to tape) coverage of the 2007 FIRST Kickoff! We’re heading up to Manchester, NH to see the announcement of the 2007 FIRST game, and we’re bringing a film crew along. Whether you’re on one of the teams that is able to go to the official kickoff event or not, you’re going to want to check this out.
Some of the highlights of the show are:
Find out what the Manchester Kickoff Event is actually like! We’ll give you the behind the scenes and show you what you don’t get to see on NASA’s broadcast.
Check out our hands-on with this year’s game elements and field. We’ll show you close up what this year’s robots will be playing with to help you better design your bots.
We will have an interview with a very special FIRST guest. Find out more about FIRST and the direction of engineering in America!
The best part is, the episode will be posted the night of kickoff! That’s right, we’re crazy enough to drive to New Hampshire, film a show, drive back, edit it, and post it, all in the same day! :ahh:
Spread the word to your friends and people on other teams who might not read Chief Delphi regularly. This episode might help them out! Then check back to this post around 8 or 9pm EST Saturday night to watch the episode!
This sounds almost to good to be true. I hope all my team members get their families to watch this production. So many families don’t have a clue to what the program is all about. I have some team members that have learned and grown so much through FIRST but I have yet to see their parents at any event. At the same time some of my kids have families that help out any way they can but can’t afford to attend kick-offs ect. THis production will let them get a taste of the program without being there. Good luck with the production.
I’ll also be going up to the Kickoff at NH this year (as I have the past two years), and hopefully one of the things I plan to do this year is take dozens of pictures of the playing field and upload them to team228.org. (Which I have also done the past two years). And if needed, I can help out with TBA while there.
