Dates for GEAR Spring 2019
Kickoff Event: February 9, 2019, Texas Tech University, Biology Lecture Hall, Lubbock, TX
During Kickoff the annually changing challenge will be revealed and teams will receive their game mats, game pieces, and the game rules. All participating students and their teachers are invited to attend the kickoff event. Students are not required to attend the event in order to participate in the competition. We will record the kickoff event and share the video link with all participating teams. Teachers/coaches need to pick up game mats and game pieces at the kickoff event or make alternative arrangements (we do not ship mats and game pieces!)
