We are participating in Robot in 1 Weekend this weekend, September 8th and September 9th. If you’re interested in helping out to build an FTC robot in 36 hours, sign up here.
Throughout the following week, all teams will be holding new member meetings where each subteam will present their work in finer detail, and you will have a chance to interact with returning members corresponding to your subteam of choice. Feel free to attend multiple sessions and explore everything our teams have to offer!
We look forward to working with all of you. Welcome to the RoboJackets family!
RoboJackets is hosting our two General Interest meetings (September 4th and 5th) to give you all the information you need to know to join RoboJackets. Both meetings will start at 6pm in Howey L3 and are identical, so you should only attend a single session.
There will be FREE PIZZA and robots galore. During the meeting, each of our 5 teams will present their projects and show you how to get involved.
After the presentation, current members from each team will be around to answer questions.
Please RSVP with one of the buttons below so we can get an accurate headcount! If you already RSVPed elsewhere, you do not need to do so again.

To ensure the safety of students and event staff, GeorgiaFIRST has made the difficult decision to cancel the regional kickoff event that was to be held at Georgia Tech tomorrow.
Teams can watch the game reveal online here. Kit of parts may be picked up from the Atlanta Destination Einstein location on Sunday between 1-4pm. We are looking into rescheduling the workshops to a later date.
