FIRST Robotics Competition
Every year we participate in the FIRST Robotics Competition, in which teams have 6 weeks to design and build a robot that competes in a sport-like event. At the end of the build season we attend regional competitions with teams from around the world in San Diego. At the 2018 San Diego Regional, we competed with teams from Chile, Denmark, Netherlands and Brazil.
FIRST Tech Challenge
This year we are competing in the FIRST Tech Challenge, a smaller version of the competition we typically compete in. Due to the smaller robot size, teams can build robots using tools and equipment at home making it a more suitable robotics competition for the current circumstances.
