“The hardest fun you’ll ever have. “

FIRST ROBOTICS COMPETITION

 

Under strict rules, limited time and resources, teams of students are challenged to raise funds, design a team “brand,” hone teamwork skills, and build and program industrial-size robots to play a difficult field game against like-minded competitors. It’s as close to real-world engineering as a student can get.

Volunteer professional mentors lend their time and talents to guide each team. Each season ends with an exciting FIRST Championship.

2020-2021 STAR WARS-INSPIRED CHALLENGE

INFINITE RECHARGE

This year’s game is part of the 2020-2021 FIRST season, FIRST GAME CHANGERS, powered by Star Wars: Force for Change.

In INFINITE RECHARGE, two alliances work to protect FIRST City from approaching asteroids caused by a distant space skirmish. Each alliance, along with their trusty droids, race to collect and score Power Cells in order to energize their Shield Generator for maximum protection. To activate sections of the Shield Generator, droids manipulate their Control Panels after scoring a specific number of Power Cells. Near the end of the match, droids race to their Rendezvous Point to get their Shield Generator operational in order to protect the city.

"Competition for the sake not of destroying one another, but for the sake of bettering and improving both competitors as a result of the competition."

- Dr. Woodie Flowers
