Kickoff was a blast! We had a lot of fun. We did not realize that the web broadcast was not starting untill 10:30 so while we were waiting, we got a tour of PSNH. Their building is so nice! It looks amazing and has a bit of history. We got to go through the offices where we saw a crane that they used when the building was a coal burning plant. We also toured the chimney room before returning to the broadcast. Dean Kamen spoke about using the word “FIRST” more often when talking about robotics. He also stressed that FIRST is about much more than robots. Wil.i.am from The Black Eyed Peas made an appearance and praised FIRST. Dean, Woodie Flowers, and Dave Landry then announced the 2011 FRC Game: Logomotion. More information on Logomotion can be found here.
