Schools and private groups have little to no funding for the next robotics season due to the COVID-19 pandemic. FIRST’s plan to host an advanced season in the following year requires many teams to search for further funding, which would not be possible in many sponsors’ current financial states. Consequently, we are requesting FIRST to allow us to carry on where we left off this season; it is in students, families, and school districts’ best interest to continue the postponed season rather than to start a new one. Many teams are capable of allowing students to meet in smaller groups and continue to have a hands-on learning experience while following healthy practices. Teams have dedicated immense time, money, and effort into building their robots that it would be a loss of such hard work if teams missed out on such an auspicious opportunity to exhibit their outstanding projects and embrace the core values of FIRST! The core values of FIRST emphasize discovery, innovation, impact, inclusion, and teamwork. But, if FIRST advances this season then many students will not be able to participate. FIRST aims to inspire youth, but many students feel discouraged by the fact that they will not be able to participate or that they will not do as well as they would like to if things go as planned. In consideration of young dreamers and future innovators, FIRST should proceed the season from where it left off and uplift team spirits.
