Maryland FIRST has Secured a Practice Space

Maryland FIRST has secured a 3 year agreement with Universities Space Research Association (USRA) to make 25,000 square foot facility available to all FIRST teams in Maryland.  The facility will be house FRC, FTC and FLL practice fields as well as classrooms, offices and storage.

Over the weekend NASA dropped off their FRC field and several volunteers set up the field.  STEMaction has invited all Maryland teams to join them for a ribbon cutting to have a look at the space between 5-6pm on November 12th. FIRST team leaders are also invited to stay from 6-7pm for a town hall discussion of how we can best use this space and our new partnership with the URSA over the course of this season and the next several years.
