2018 FRC Kickoff at the University of Michigan
We hope you had as much fun as we did! Please help us make FAMNM Kickoff even better by filling out the feedback form!
The FIRST® Robotics Competition (FRC) season begins each year in early January with a worldwide kickoff. At this time, the year’s challenge is revealed and teams begin their 6-week design and build season. In addition to showing the game reveal broadcast, we offer tours of the university’s engineering campus, presentations by inspiring professionals and university faculty, and a mock field setup to help students understand the new game.
NEW! This year, FAMNM is providing an online digital booklet that you can view on your phone! Enter your team number and get schedules and locations specific for your team!
