The kickoff for the FIRST Robotics Tech Challenge is September 6! This competition is open to teams of 7-12th graders. If you have a group of kids that are interested in robotics, especially if they have experience in FIRST Lego League, this is the next step up! Even if you don't yet have a FIRST team, you can come to the kickoff and learn about this year's challenge. The championship is hosted at UVM in March.
