Find out about FIRST Tech Challenge and learn about this year’s game challenge called Ultimate Goal. See a playing field set-up for this year’s game and participate in workshops to get your season started. Watch the livestream from Kick-off.

This year, the BC Kick-off will be live streamed on youtube. Teams are encouraged to watch the BC Livestream starting at 9am. We’ll be showing some of the same content (Game Animation, message from Ken Johnson) as FIRST, but we’re planning our own Live from the Field segment with one of our BC Referees.  You can ask questions in the Chat box and we’ll direct the camera exactly where you want or test the item you team wants to see. 

After the game reveal and Live from the Field segment, there will be workshops to help your team get their season started.

All workshops have time for Q&A, so come prepared with questions and ideas to share.

In the afternoon, teams in the Victoria and Vancouver area are welcome to reserve a time for a field visit, following COVID safety protocols.

Our season is going to look a bit different this year, but that just means it’s a chance to let our creativity shine and we’ll be starting with our own Kick-off event!
