Two Championship Survey Results and Path Forward

As many of you know, after we announced that FIRST would be moving to having two Championships starting in 2017, we released a survey to FIRST Robotics Competition teams on this change.

7,355 individuals responded. This represents about 10% or so of the total number of mentors and students we have in FRC. About 75% of the 7,355 provided a team number, and those respondents were from 1,501 teams, about 52% of the total number of FRC teams we had in 2015.

2015 Kit of Parts Survey Posted

Today’s blog post is from FRC Kit of Parts Engineer, Jonathan Bryant.

We’re interested in your feedback on the 2015 FRC Kit of Parts! We know that you are getting barraged with surveys right now, we apologize for the overload, but we really want to know what you think! You’re feedback is instrumental in shaping future Kit of Parts. We use this survey to look for new parts, improve current items, and increase the value that the Kit of Parts provides to teams! This feedback is also sent to Suppliers to help them make good decisions about their donations.

It’s Happening!

I walked through the Championship venue this afternoon to see how things were coming along. This is going to be one big show, for sure. There’s something about seeing it in person that makes it much more real than just seeing it on paper. I can’t wait for the teams to arrive! I hope FIRST has some insurance, because we’re going to be blowing the doors off this place.
