FIRST Championship, April 17-19 in Atlanta’s Georgia Dome





Upcoming event from our friends @ FIRST.

The FIRST Robotics Competition brings new meaning to “March Madness” as high-school students across the country put their metal and academic muscle to the test at Regional competitions and try to advance to the FIRST Championship, April 17-19 in Atlanta’s Georgia Dome. FIRST events are open to the public and admission is free.

The journey to compete at Regionals began when thousands of aspiring young engineers received details of this year’s engineering challenge, FIRST Overdrive. They also received a kit containing 422 parts such as motors, batteries, a control system, automation components…but no instructions. Working with mentors, students had only six weeks to design, build, and test their robots..
