FRC Blogged - Where's the Einstein Report?

Blog Image: 

Hello Teams,

I’m sure you’re wondering what the status is of the Einstein report. I can tell you that our internal staff, with a great deal of support from our outside experts and the Einstein teams themselves, have been working very hard on this. The current draft report is over 20 pages long, and includes lots of detail. Getting all these details right is taking some time, but we hope to have a final version ready for release shortly.

FRC Blogged - A few quick updates

Hello Teams,

We’d like to welcome Engineering Intern Brendan McLeod to the FRC HQ family.  Brendan just completed his first year at Worcester Polytechnic Institute where he is majoring in Robotics and Mechanical Engineering.  He was a member and ultimately captain of FIRST Robotics Team 1058 in Londonderry, and has been a mentor for both FLL and FRC teams.  He’ll be spending the summer building robots, doing research, and even helping with game ideas.  And he gets paid to do it!  That’s what I call a sweet gig.

FRC Blogged - Important Announcement

Good Afternoon Teams,

This is Frank Merrick writing, with some news.  Bill Miller has concluded his service at FIRST, after seven seasons as Director of FRC. Bill’s efforts with FIRST made a world of difference, leading us to double the number of teams in FRC during his tenure and positively impacting the lives of tens of thousands of students and mentors. FRC would not be where it is without his hard work and vision, and he will be greatly missed.  We wish him the best of luck in his future endeavors.
