Walt Whitman Clubs Night
Last year over 90 Walt Whitman High School students signed our interest form, it was by far our best year ever. This year we want to break 100 and will need everyone’s help to drum up interest in robotics.

The 2017 FRC Teaser
You remember the teaser from last year? Well, we’re doing it again! The 2017 Season Teaser will be released at 7PM Eastern Time on Tuesday, September 20th. So, set those calendar reminders (and for some of you, those alarm clocks) and keep an eye on the FIRST Facebook page. And once that teaser comes out, remember to share, share, share!
The teaser release, and the aftershow below, seem like they could be excellent excuses to get the team together to have a little party, watch, and get everyone excited for the upcoming season. Start planning for those fried pickle chips now!
Downloadable Content (DLC) Pack 1
Simultaneously with the release of the teaser, we will be releasing a set of digital goodies related to the upcoming season in the form of a DLC pack. You will be able to download the pack on the landing page for the teaser, the web address for which we will be publishing when the teaser is released.
I think there’s a good chance you’ll find the content interesting, useful, and maybe even fun. Just like the DLC packs available for many videogames, this is intended to enhance your experience. Unlike the DLC packs available for many videogames, however, this will be free! And, as our use of a pack number suggests, we will be releasing more of these over time.
After the 2017 Season Teaser and DLC Pack 1 are released, be sure to join the FIRST Robotics Competition community and our friends from the GameSense crew for the Teaser Aftershow! The show starts at 7:30PM Eastern Time and you can find out how to watch and participate here. Join the GameSense crew and special guests for a fun and lively discussion as they dissect what they saw and heard (or what they think they saw and heard), along with what it all means*.
One special guest currently scheduled to participate is FIRST Friend Emma Dumont. Emma is an FRC Alumna, current FRC Mentor, actress, dancer, model, violinist and roller derby player**. With her broad range of talents and passions, her perspective on the teaser is sure to be interesting.
This will be a show not to miss!
