Kickoff, California Style

Week three of FRC build season is underway, yet Kickoff seems like it was months ago with all the activity that has transpired since then.  With the most FRC teams of any state, California was hopping with activity on January 5th with six Kickoff locations and thousands of FIRSTers in attendance.

In the week surrounding Kickoff, we saw, heard and read about California FRC teams in the media sharing their excitement for the launch of the 2013 FIRST Robotics season and the new game, Ultimate Ascent.  At Kickoffs throughout the state, many tape measure, camera, coffee, team spirit and frisbee sightings were reported. Some California Kickoffs hosted workshops, celebrated with live entertainment and were featured in Wired Magazine and radio shows.
