This year the Orlando Regional Planning Committee has expanded our workshops. We have 6 hours of technical and 6 hours of non-technical workshops for your teams. We are excited to welcome the Central Florida Chapter of the Fluid Power Society who will give a two-hour hands-on workshop on pneumatics assembly, the founders of Modulux will give a workshop on gearbox assembly and the stars of "Robot in 3 Days" will talk about this years design and build.
On the non-tech side, we have SPAM giving a "Strategy and Scouting" workshop, World Champion Imagery Winner Exploding Bacon giving their "Big Bacon Theory" of Image and Marketing, a round table discussion of "Women in STEM" careers and a few more on both sides that aren't confirmed yet.
We hope your team can send a representative or two to each workshop so they can share all they learn with the rest of your team.
For those who have not seen the new game animation, it can be seen here.
Welcome to the Florida FIRST Orlando Regional Competition 2014. The Orlando FIRST Regional Planning Committee welcomes you to our 2014 robotics competition! If you've been here before, you know Orlando puts on one of the best competitions within FIRST. We're looking forward to seeing your team members, mentors and other supporters at the University of Central Florida in March.
The 16th Annual Orlando Regional is scheduled for March 13-15 at the University of Central Florida! First event registration is scheduled to open on September 26th.
Although traditionally, the Orlando Regional has been held during Spring Break, due to UCF Arena scheduling requirements, the 2014 Orlando Regional will be a 3rd week event next year: March 12-15, 2014. Mark your calendars!
Note: All FIRST Robotics Competition regionals and tournaments are free and open to the public. Additional community events are listed as a service to the FIRST community and do not represent an endorsement by FIRST. Local Kickoffs and Events Run by Teams are conducted, managed and overseen by the identified organizer, not by FIRST. Link for Program Registration: https://my.usfirst.org/frc/tims/
