Watch robots from 36 high school teams go head-to-head in this year's FIRST Tech Challenge. This is the Missouri-Kansas regional competition, and the winners go to nationals in Houston in April.
The FIRST Tech Challenge is a nationwide robotics program for grades 7-12, administered both inside and outside the classroom. Students join teams to design, build, code and operate complex robots to play a themed floor game. This year’s theme is “Freight Frenzy,” and teams will show off robots that can overcome obstacles in a complex transportation system and race against the clock to load and deliver items to specified points.
The competition is open to spectators. Face masks are recommended for participants and spectators. The action will be livestreamed for those who are unable to attend in person. Live scoring will also be available online.
