FTC Mix-Up Event

This FREE opportunity is for teams who would like an opportunity to compete with their robot. Teams will bring their robots, compete in alliances and we will keep score. The "game" will incorporate elements from previous seasons - so be prepared.

We do ask that teams register.


Before Kick-Off

  • All teams in Iowa are "highly" encouraged to register via TIMS by September 9, 2014. This is the official way of registering with FIRST. If you need to change contact information, you can do that via TIMS.
  • Teams must also register with FTC-Iowa (link opens July 1, 2014)
  • FTC Rockwell Collins Returning Team grants are still available. Please visit the link above.
