(Post Kickoff)

Hosted by: GoFIRST at the University of Minnesota


GoFIRST, a University of Minnesota student group comprised of FIRST alumni and robot enthusiasts, will host a Post Kickoff (PoKo) event for FTC teams.

Begin your game analysis & strategic design process immediately following Kickoff. Teams have the opportunity to analyze the game together and implement an invaluable design process to help them through the season.

This event is a great experience for anyone, whether you are new to FIRST or you are a seasoned veteran.
