New JUMPSTART events coming to the Twin Cities Area December 2019!

What is JUMPSTART?

JUMPSTART Training Events were created back in 2014 when 4607’s Captain saw a need for training sessions for FRC teams in Central Minnesota. This drive led to creations of two different projects for 4607: The Central Minnesota Robotics Hub and the JUMPSTART Training Events.

JUMPSTART Training Events

JUMPSTART Training Events have two key components:

  1. They are free for all attendees
  2. They allow all participants to provide sessions that further the FRC community


When mentors Alex Jurek and Ryan Swanson approached St Cloud State University representatives about providing a training event, SCSU was all in and ready to host. The only reservation was that there would be no registration fee. Throughout the four seasons of offering these sessions, we have never collected a single dollar. And when the event is longer than four hours, we make certain to provide sustenance to our attendees - again, free of charge.


This format has proved to be successful and is now growing faster than we projected. However, our relationships that 4607 has developed throughout the FRC, professional, and the post-secondary environments has proved to be great assets in growing JUMPSTART events. We believe that this style of program will eventually grow in a fashion that it will be easily adopted by many other driven FIRST organizations world wide in a very short order.
