FIRST Tech Challenge Director Ken Johnson’s blog post at the FTC blog this week hints at things to come next season. Among other things, he observes,
“...we have a great platform but room to improve. The field management system and the content of the kit will evolve. The power and strength of the new kit combined with the sensors and programming are a foundation for an exciting future.”
He also noted, “The feedback we’ve got on Face-Off! has been great – and that sets the bar pretty high for next year. We feel that pressure and we’re committed to another challenging game for next year. Details will have to wait until September but we’re working hard.”
We can’t wait!
There’s still time to provide feedback from your FTC team, too. The deadline for completing the FIRST Tech Challenge KOP (Kit of Parts) survey is April 7, and while it’s a long survey (40 questions, referring to the BoM of the current Tetrix kit), participants are entered in a raffle to win a free Tetrix base set.
You can find the survey at http://www.zoomerang.com/Survey/?p=WEB228XCU6VDE7 and

The more feedback we provide, the better our shared FIRST Tech Challenge experience!
