FIRST Tech Challenge Team Email Blast | New Awards | Kit of Parts | ROBOTC | Kick-Off! | i.am.FIRST

Post by Admin on Thu Aug 11, 2011 5:24 pm

Hello FTC Teams!
You are receiving this email because you have been identified as the main contact for a FIRST Tech Challenge (FTC) Team. FTC Team email blasts contain information that we believe will help your team to be successful.

1. FTC Awards
2. Kit of Parts
3. RobotC News
4. FTC Kick-Off!
5. i.am.FIRST

1. FTC Awards:
This season, FTC will pilot 2 new awards at some events. Please note that these awards will not be presented at every event. Always check with the Affiliate Partner for your region to see if they will pilot these awards in the 2011 FTC season.

· Compass Award – recognizes an adult Coach or Mentor who has provided outstanding guidance and support for a team throughout the year. Teams submit a short (less than 1 minute) high quality video that tells us what sets their Coach or Mentor apart.

· Promote Award – recognizes a team for their creation of a compelling video message for the public designed to change our culture and celebrate science, technology, engineering and math. Teams submit a 1 minute video that begins with the following sentence: “I’m going to change the world…”

Stay tuned. We’ll release more information on these awards soon.

2. Kit of Parts:
Have you ordered your robot kit yet? Kits are in stock and are currently shipping. Get a head start on your building skills by ordering your kit early.

3. ROBOTC news:
As you may already know, ROBOTC is no longer included in the FTC Kit of Parts.

It is important to note that there is no difference between FTC ROBOTC and ROBOTC for MINDSTORMS. If your team already has a ROBOTC classroom license, you do not need to purchase special ROBOTC software for the FTC competition.

ROBOTC 3.0 will be available on August 31st. Prior to August 31st, please order the “ROBOTC for FTC Off-Season” license. If your team purchases a “ROBOTC for FTC Off-Season” license, the full amount of the purchase price will be applied to your ROBOTC 3.0 upgrade.

If your team is purchasing a new license of ROBOTC 3.0 for the FTC Competition, you’ll have the following options:

· ROBOTC single license which will last 1 year from the day it is activated for $49.00
· ROBOTC 3.0 three (3) seat competition license will last 1 year from the day it is activated for $99.00
· ROBOTC 3.0 thirty (30) seat classroom license will last 1 year from the day it is activated for $199.00
· ROBOTC 3.0 plus ROBOTC Robot Virtual World thirty (30) seat classroom license will last 1 year from the day it is activated for $249.00. This is a $250.00 savings for FTC teams.
· ROBOTC 3.0 thirty (30) seat perpetual license will not expire, and teams who purchase this option will receive upgrades for the life of ROBOTC3. The cost for this option is $549.99
· Server licenses are also available

To order your copy of ROBOTC, please go to http://www.ROBOTC.net/ftc

4. FTC Kick-Off!
Are you excited? We are!

On September 10, 2011 we’ll reveal the challenge for the 2011 season of FTC. Our official unveiling will happen at 3pm Eastern at http://www.usfirst.org/ftc. Check with your local Affiliate Partner to see if there will be a live Kick-Off event in your area.

5. i.am.FIRST
What are YOU doing on August 14th? We’ll be watching ABC’s “i.am.FIRST: Science is Rock and Roll” special, featuring will.i.am, Willow Smith and Dean Kamen, with footage from the FIRST Championship held in April of 2010. The special will be aired on ABC at 7pm Eastern. 6pm Pacific.

Being a Gracious Professional involves respecting yourself, your team, other teams, and everyone around you. It is a way of doing things with a competitive spirit, without making anyone feel like a loser. Gracious Professionalism is a way of interacting with other people respectfully, doing excellent work, and promoting teamwork and appreciation of others.
