The holiday season may be over but we’re not done celebrating, because the beginning of the new year also marks the annual FIRST® Robotics Competition Kickoff! During Kickoff, the details of the new season’s game are revealed and teams begin the six-week build season.

In case you weren’t aware, FIRST Robotics Competition is the final program within the FIRST® progression, serving students in grades 9-12. Many FIRST LEGO League students end up graduating to the program as they grow older (not only is it fun, sticking with FIRST also helps pay for the future! Millions of dollars in scholarship opportunities are available).

What makes Kickoff so exciting is that it’s the official game reveal – details are kept top-secret until the LIVE  broadcast airs at 10:30 am Eastern Time tomorrow. In the meantime, we can tell you the name of the game: FIRST POWER UPSM. Check out the teaser for a sneak peek of what’s in store:

Join the excitement, and tune in tomorrow! Share your watch party selfies with us on Twitter using #FIRSTPOWERUP.
