FTC Qualifiers Getting Underway

The lineups for our Maryland/DC FIRST Tech Challenge Qualifier Tournaments are now set.  See the complete list of team assignments:  MD-DC 2012-13 FTC Qualifier Assignments V3.

Top teams from each Qualifier will earn their way to the Maryland FTC Championship on February 23 at the JHU Applied Physics Lab in Laurel, and potentially to the FIRST Championships in St. Louis April 25-27.

All FTC Qualifiers are free and open to the public, so plan to come see an event.  You can stop by anytime, usually between 9am – 4pm, but the best time is often the afternoon when elimination rounds begin.  Here’s where we will be:

December 9, 2012 Sidwell Friends School, Washington, DC
December 15, 2012 Dr. James A. Forrest Career & Technology Center, Leonardtown.  Event website.
January 12, 2013 US Naval Academy, Annapolis
January 26, 2013 Capitol College, Laurel
February 2, 2013 Marriotts Ridge High School, Marriottsville
February 9, 2013 Havre de Grace High School, Havre de Grace

Better yet, you can volunteer for an event.  There are lots of volunteer roles, and it’s the best way to get a behind-the-scenes feel  for the teams and the FTC program.
