As a result of the evolving coronavirus (COVID-19) situation and at the recommendation of local public health officials, the Silicon Valley Regional on April 1-4 has been postponed. This is out of an abundance of caution, and with the health and safety of our FIRST community and surrounding communities in mind. The new dates for the Silicon Valley Regional have not yet been set.
ROBOTS COMPETING & COLLABORATING
TALENTED HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS
Countdown to the 2020 Silicon Valley Regional
INFINITE RECHARGE, part of the 2020 season:
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.
