FIRST on The Fosters

On the popular Freeform (ABC Family) Show, The Fosters, FIRST Robotics has been a main story time lately. Many Southern California teams were featured in the show. You can see us in the background on many shots as well as playing in a match with the focus team. Austin, 2016 team captain, is also the head referee.

In case you missed the episode, you can watch it on the ABC website here. You can find us playing a match around 24 minutes in and see our banner and shirts around 35 minutes in (excluding commercials).

Here are some highlights. Hover over for caption. Click each to see full size.

And of course, a special thank you to Eileen Kahn, everyone at FIRST, and everyone at Freeform, for making this possible! Having these types of demos with other Southern California teams is incredible and we thank them for the opportunities.

The Fosters airs on Freeform (formerly ABC Family) on Mondays at 8:00 PM EST/7:00 PM CST (8:00 PM for local cable and 5:00 PM PST for Directv/Satellite).
