DE is one of Georgia’s unique programs which is all about helping teams on their journey to the Championship Field. The program features four FRC playing fields throughout the state with complete sets of field elements; these fields are available to for all teams to use.
GeorgiaFIRST, Kimberly Clark, and Walton Robotics Team 2974 created the program in 2012. It was so successful that it expanded to four facilities as of 2017, with locations in Marietta, Atlanta, Columbus and Albany.
Teams from all over Georgia are invited to test their robots on FRC competition fields, provide and receive technical training in conjunction with other teams, and network with other students and coaches in the FIRST community!
The original mission of DE was to get a GA team to play on the championship field. In 2017 we crushed that mission, with four teams advancing to the championship field, and one advancing to the finals on the Houston Championship field! Congratulations to:
So what now?
This fall we will be re-evaluating our mission to determine what the next goal is for GaFIRST robotics teams – stay tuned!
