2017 Kickoff registration

Louisiana FIRST Tech Challenge Coaches,

Below is a link to register for the Kickoff next week.  Please RSVP using the Google form as soon as you can, so we can finalize details, but please confirm by Tuesday. Teams that register by then will take home from kickoff a 2017 game element, and I plan to give every team there a printed copy of the game manual to get the strategy discussion underway.

Here’s the link to register: https://goo.gl/forms/PQNjce2KPhSV0SPm2

The tentative schedule is below  The workshop/panel topics depend on you.  We’re looking for our veteran teams and mentors to host/co-host the workshops/panels so please let me know if you can help or have a topic to present – particularly with Blocks programming.
