Virtual Chairman’s Exchanges

The Chairman’s award is one of the most prestigious awards in FIRST, and quite a lengthy process to complete, with four aspects of the submission. To help teams practice and share information, many regionals have Chairman’s Exchanges, where teams can practice presenting and ask questions of each other.

In wake of the 2020 Season being suspended, Team Neutrino is partnering with other teams to host Virtual Chairman’s Exchanges to provide teams that same opportunity in these trying times. Below is a list of all the exchanges happening, their dates, and a form to sign up for the exchange. Attendance is limited to six presenting teams and a total of 100 participants for the sake of time and call quality, so sign up soon!

Teams are invited to watch, present, and ask questions at the exchanges. We ask that each individual that wants to attend to fill out the session form (i.e. instead of one person signing their team up to present, we ask that each presenter must fill out the form). You can also apply to be a session host here and/or a guest judge here. We’ll see you there!

Kickoff 2020

For this year’s game, FIRST is partnering with the Star Wars: Force for Change to bring us Infinite Recharge! We spent our time well on kickoff, reading through the game manual, discussing rules, strategy, and our aims for the season. You can read the game manual here, and watch the game animation below! This year, we’ll be competing at the Greater Kansas City Regional (Feb. 27 – Mar. 1) and the Iowa Regional (Mar. 25 – 28). Good luck to all teams competing this season, and may the Force be with you!
