Post Kickoff Event (POKO)

GO FIRST, the FIRST student alumni group at the U of MN, will host its 6th annual Post Kick Off Event immediately following KOP distribution. POKO Participants will analyze the 2016 game in order to better understand the rules for the season and review the design process to give teams a place to start thinking about the robot they'd like to build.
