2017 Fall Workshops

Cancelled/Postponed: The 2017 fall workshops will not be held on November 4th due to the low number of registered teams.

We invite all FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC), FIRST Tech Challenge (FTC) and VEX Robotics Competition (VRC) teams to participate, since much of the information on how to innovate, how to build a drive system, scholarships, project management, and many other topics can help team members for all programs.

Time: 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM

Host: FRC Team 4 Element

Venue: High Tech High Los Angeles
