2019 FIRST Robotics Competition Kickoff — “Destination: DEEP SPACE”
The 2019 FIRST Robotics Competition kickoff marks the beginning of the design and build season for the FIRST Robotics Competition. Teams have the opportunity to meet at “local” Kickoffs to compare notes, get ideas, make friends, find mentoring teams, learn the game, pick up the Kit of Parts, and get geared up for the exciting competition season. The 2019 Kickoff took place on Saturday January 5th, 2019.
