FTC Kickoff Report 2014

Published by:


On September 6, the FTC game was released. The three SWERVE teams gathered excitedly at Microsoft with many other teams from around the state. The auditorium was large and loud, everyone enthusiastically chatting about their ideas for the FTC game this year. We couldn’t wait for the kickoff to start.

FIRST officials presented a live action video showing the game, Cascade Effect. All the teams not present got to watch a YouTube video released later that day. (

After the game release, everyone split into four different groups which each discussed different, but equally important topics: programming, team dynamics, autonomous and game analysis breakdown. Getting a chance to brainstorm with other teams, while having mentor support was lovely. Since so many brains were on the various issues, we were able to get a plethora of different points of view.

SWERVE always loves to support new teams in any way we can, so being part of the community while brainstorming and sharing ideas with rookie teams is fulfilling while also being super fun.
