Event List

  • New England District - Hartford Event, Hartford Public High School

    Come and experience firsthand the excitement of a FIRST® Robotics Competition event! Combining the excitement of sport with the rigors of science and technology, this is the ultimate Sport for the Mind™. Watch as student-built-robots compete in the 2016 challenge, FIRST STRONGHOLD. In FIRST STRONGHOLD, two Alliances of three robots each are on a Quest to breach their opponents’ fortifications, weaken their tower with boulders, and capture the opposing tower. Robots score points by breaching opponents’ defenses and scoring boulders through goals in the opposing tower. During the final 20 seconds of the Quest, robots may surround and scale the opposing tower to capture it.

    Get a taste of the hardest fun you’ll ever have! FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) combines the excitement of sport with the rigors of science and technology. FRC teams made up of engineering mentors, teachers, corporate sponsors, and students are challenged to raise funds, design a team "brand," hone teamwork skills, and build and program robots to perform prescribed tasks against a field of competitors. Under strict time limits and limited funds, teams compete in a new competition each year to design and build a robot in just six weeks. It’s as close to "real-world engineering" as a student can get.
