On September 22nd, we had our orientation meeting for new members interested in joining team 1318! During the meeting, we explained what FIRST is and its mission, as well as what FRC specifically is all about. Rookies participated in an activity designed to give them a general idea on how our team runs, from getting a challenge to designing a product to presenting to a sponsor for materials, and finally working together to build the tallest structure possible with the materials provided. Finally, we played the 2017 FRC game teaser that FIRST released earlier in the week, which gave us our theme for the year and hinted at what the game might be. Check it out on YouTube if you haven't seen it!

For those of you who were not able to attend the orientation but would like to learn more about FIRST and the team, and as well as find out what you're in store for this year, we've included the powerpoint we played during the meeting you can download below.
