December 19, 2016: Mock Kickoff

In anticipation of the release of the 2016 FRC game, FIRST Stronghold, new MidKnight Inventors attended a Mock Kickoff this Saturday to learn about the team’s process of strategizing during kickoff, which can often be confusing to members that have not gone through it already.

At West Windsor – Plainsboro High School South, our mentors Libby Kamen and Eric Drost led a walkthrough of Strategic Design (which can be found on our MidKnight U page!) and what the Kickoff day will entail. We then practice analyzing a game that was brand new to us, by using the game and season materials for the 2004 FRC game, FIRST Frenzy: Raising the Bar.

New MidKnight Inventors learned a great deal about how the team formulates a strategy every year and a general overview of the design and build process. In addition, the event served as a team bonding activity , allowing new and returning members to work together to analyze a game our students had not seen before.

We can’t wait for the 2016 season!
