61 HIGH SCHOOL TEAMS TO COMPETE IN FIRST ROBOTICS COMPETITION,
NUTTER CENTER AT WRIGHT STATE UNIVERSITY,
3640 COLONEL GLENN HIGHWAY, DAYTON OH 45435
The FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) is a unique varsity sport of the mind, designed to help high-school-aged students experience science and technology in a competition that feels more like the NCAA Final Four than a science fair.
The competition challenges young people who work with mentors in just six weeks to design and build a robot to play a pre-defined game. This year’s robots venture inside a life-size video game to do battle against each other for the chance to challenge “The Boss” atop a six-foot tower.
Sounds a little crazy, right? You’ve really got to see it to believe it. The competition is designed by world-famous inventor Dean Kamen, MIT professor emeritus Dr. Woodie Flowers, and a committee of creatively minded innovators.
Thursday will consist of registration and practice matches. Qualification matches will be played all day Friday and Saturday morning. Elimination matches (akin to the playoffs and Super Bowl) will be played Saturday afternoon. Activities run from about 9 am until 5 pm each day.
