The FIRST Robotics Competition challenges teams of young people and their mentors to solve a common problem in a six- week timeframe using a standard "kit of parts," additional materials, and a common set of rules. Teams design and build robots and enter them in a series of competitions designed by engineering professionals. The competition has grown to include over 4000 teams form across the world competing in many Regional Events, and a National Championship Event.
From now until February 21, the team will be meeting on Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 6-9 in the Electronics area on the 2nd floor, and also on Saturdays from 9:30 - 4.
