Photos from 2007 Rhode Island FIRST Vex Challenge


I dropped in toward the end of the Rhode Island FIRST Vex Challenge yesterday, and I learned something I didn’t know; my home state is the first state in the US where every public high school has the opportunity to participate in a FIRST Challenge. I realize we are the smallest state in the US, and get to take 20 against scaling problems, but it’s still pretty cool.

Got photos of robot challenges in your area? Post some links in the comments. [photo set] Link.
