1. Two Days until our 2014-2105 FTC Kickoff! Our Official Kickoff Video will be available on our YouTube page and also on our Game Page on our website! You can find an FTC Kickoff Event near you here, http://www.usfirst.org/roboticsprograms/ftc/events! 


2.  LabVIEW for the 2014-2015 Season

National Instruments generously donates LabVIEW for Lego Mindstorms to all FTC Teams. Access to the free download is now available through National Instrument’s website. A link to the site will be made available after your team has followed all requirements to register for the season, and only valid FTC Teams are able to request a serial number for the full version of the software. Mac users must request a copy of the DVD, and the option to request it will also be on National Instrument’s website.

If you are a returning team, and still have last season’s DVD and serial number, you may continue to use that throughout the 2014-2015 season. 


3. We are constantly creating and adding brand new resources to our Team Resources and Volunteer Resources page on our website. Make sure to check out all our helpful new materials. This week we have a brand new FTC Sensor Guide and a FTC Robot Wiring Guide for Teams! 


4.  The 2015 FIRST Scholarship Program website is live! Learn more about FIRST Scholarship resources here,  http://usfirst.org/about/scholarships/scholarship-opportunities!
