[text_output]This weekend, FIRST-RGV, the City of Pharr and Harlingen CISD hosted hundreds of FIRST team members for scrimmages, programming and social media training. These events; while in two different locations in the Rio Grande Valley, allowed coaches and team members to focus on the upcoming competition season. Teams enrolled in the FIRST Lego League (FLL) and the FIRST Tech Challenge (FTC) got hands on activities and those that have had a chance to build their robot, got to try out this years competition field.

We were visited this weekend by Jennifer of FIRST in Texas. She is responsible for most of the social media output from the organization. We were honored to have her in the FIRST-RGV Robotics Lab giving the teams important information on social media and fundraising ideas.

Thanks to all the coaches and team members that attended the weekend. We have another great event scheduled for October 29, 2016 in Harlingen. For more information, visit our events calendar at
