MOVED to 10/9!

Are you curious about FIRST Robotics coming to Bennington?

Are you a new FTC VT team and are ready to dig into your new kit?

Do you just love UNBOXING events??

The team of UVM College of Engineering and Mathematical Sciences, Generator Maker Space, UVM 4-H have been working hard – from a distance – to rally up new FTC teams for the 2020-2021 season. Since all of the teams will be receiving kits within days of each other, and since it matters how you open and explore your kit, we are excited to bring you a workshop on doing just that!

Join the FTC Team #16221, the Manchester Machine Makers, as they gather ‘round the kit at BAM to walk us through the parts and pieces, talk about what it’s like to be a 1st year team, and have a generally good time!
