FIRST Nevada Robotics
Date: Saturday, December 16th | 10am-4pm
Watch FIRST Nevada robotics matches, drive a robot, and learn about their K-12 STEAM robotics programs for students in Nevada.
On Saturday from 10am to 4pm, FIRST will provide FLL Jr. kits and the FRC program driving their robots around.
Beginning at around 11:30am, the FIRST Nevada FIRST Tech Challenge program will host a scrimmage with 6-8 teams participating.
The competition takes place in a 12x12 arena and each round lasts 3 minutes: 15 seconds where each robot moves on its own, and then 2 minutes and 45 seconds where each robot is controlled by remote control wirelessly.
Each round features 4 robots in a 2v2 format. Every robot is different and constructed to accomplish specific objectives in the field of play. This year’s theme is Relic Recovery.
