Schedule

Since an FRC-style build is somewhat amorphous by nature, we don’t know exactly when the exciting key events (like prototype testing) will occur. To ensure our viewers at home can get in on the action, we’re providing 72 straight hours of live streamed footage. However, for those who don’t have that kind of free time to tune in (or are busy building their own robots), Build Blitz will be sticking to a “highlight schedule” of sorts – think of it as the intermission reports in pro sporting events.

As part of the ongoing sponsorship and partnership with FRCTop25.com, VEXpro is excited to invite Mike Starke and Justin Montois to Texas to host a show like only they can. Grant Cox (Team JVN) and Karthik Kanagasabapathy (Team Copioli) will be embedded as sideline reporters, experiencing the successes (or failures) alongside their teams. A few times each day, they’ll sit down with Mike & Justin to discuss where the teams are at and review highlights from the past few hours.

There will be two live streams – one for Team JVN, one for Team Copioli. The third stream will activate during these “special reports,” and all will be embedded right on BuildBlitz.com for easy viewing. Of course, be sure to be tweeting your questions and reactions to @BuildBlitz, @TeamJVN, and @TeamCopioli, posting them on the Build Blitz Facebook page, or commenting on the official Chief Delphi thread.
