FTC Florida News - February 7, 2011

Post by Admin on Tue Feb 08, 2011 12:43 pm

Hello Teams,


Topics Include:
1. FTC Florida Championship Live Webcast
2. Team Videos
3. FTC Demonstration at the FRC Florida Regional, March 12, 2011
4. FTC Minibots for the FRC Florida Regional
5. National PTA's Convention

------------------------
1. FTC Florida Championship Live Webcast
The Florida Championship tournament will be webcast on Saturday, February 12, 2011 starting at 10:00 a.m. Invite family and friends to join the fun by watching the action on our ustream.tv broadcast: www.ustream.tv/channel/florida-ftc Some Apple computers running the Safari web browser have trouble watching videos on ustream.tv. Try the Firefox web browser if Safari doesn't work.
------------------------
2. Team Videos
Have you ever wondered what a team needs to do to win the Inspire Award? You will have the opportunity to find this out soon. The first team email blast after the state championship will contain links to team videos. I believe that sharing the team videos will elevate the entire Florida FTC program because every video contains something that will help other FTC teams. Please leave your team videos online for at least a few months following the state championship.
------------------------
3. FTC Demonstration at the FRC Florida Regional, March 12, 2011
The FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) Florida Regional is hosted by the University of Central Florida in Orlando on March 10-12th. We are conducting an FTC demonstration on Saturday morning, March 12th. The current plan is to setup the Get Over It! playing field and have four teams demonstrate their robots. Space limitations may limit the demonstration to a partial field or perhaps tabletop displays.

We have space for four FTC teams to staff the FTC exhibit. Send an email to michael.coleman@flfirst.org if your team is interested in helping with this demonstration.
------------------------
4. FTC Minibots for the FRC Florida Regional
The FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) 2011 game was announced on January 8th. The new game, Logo Motion, incorporates a minibot constructed with TETRIX parts that climbs a pole during the endgame for a massive amount of points. FIRST is encouraging FRC teams to partner with FTC teams to play this year's game. I haven't had an opportunity to read the rules, however, I understand that FTC teams are invited to bring their own minibot [without partnering with an FRC team in advance] to regional competitions and offer them to FRC teams to play the game. You can view the Logo Motion game animation on the FIRST web site: www.usfirst.org/roboticsprograms/frc/content.aspx?id=18762

The Lead Robot Inspector at the FRC Florida Regional would like to know if any FTC teams are going to bring minibots to play the Logo Motion game. Please send an email to michael.coleman@flfirst.org if your team is planning on bringing a minibot to the FRC Florida Regional.

------------------------
5. National PTA's Convention and Exhibition at Disney's Coronado Springs Resort in Orlando, FL, June 9 - 12, 2011 (Exhibits: June 9 - 11, 2011)
FIRST is looking for FTC teams to staff their exhibit. Send an email to michael.coleman@flfirst.org if your team is interested in attending this conference.
