The FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) kicks off tomorrow, Saturday, Jan. 7, at EWU’s Showalter Hall, featuring 30 teams of high school students from the region.
The event will unveil the 2017 season of the competition. Students will be shown the game field and challenge details for the first time, receiving a kit full of parts with limited instructions.
Students will have six weeks to design and build a robot to meet this year’s engineering challenge and will compete against other FRC teams beginning in March.
