There are a limited number of spots available. First priority will be given to high schools that do not currently have a FIRST Robotics Competition team.

This grant is designed to immerse teachers into a FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) atmosphere, where participants will be taken through a hands-on experience around high school level FIRST Robotics. This Professional Learning Opportunity will take place:

Where: Kettering University FIRST Robotics Center in Flint
When: Two days- Friday, October 11, and Saturday, October 12, 2019.
Grant Covers:
• All teacher expenses (travel, hotel, meals).
• $300 Stipend for participating in the two-day training
   (stipend to cover Friday evening & Saturday)
• $125 to the district to cover the cost of Friday's substitute teacher

Teachers will learn by doing - all participants will get the opportunity to:
• build a competition robot drivetrain,
• program their creation to complete given tasks,
• drive their creations
• come away with a deep understanding of what it takes to run a competitive high school
  FIRST Robotics Team.
• Earn SCHECHs.

The course is two days. Both days must be attended in order to earn SCHECHs and the stipend.
