Event Description: Free and open to the public! Eighty of the best and brightest high school robotics teams will be competing in this two-field, two-day event. Come out and cheer on your favorite team, or learn more about bringing FIRST Robotics programs to your community.

FIRST Robotics Competition combines the excitement of sports with the rigors of science. Under strict rules, limited resources, and the guidance of volunteer mentors including engineers, teachers, business professionals, parents, alumni and more, teams of 25+ students build and program robots to perform challenging tasks against a field of competitors. Teams must also raise funds, design a team "brand," hone teamwork skills, and perform community outreach. In addition to learning valuable STEM and life skills, participants are eligible to apply for $80 million in college scholarships.

Every January, FIRST unveils the challenge or “game” at an annual kick-off event that is simulcast to locations around the world. Teams receive a kit of common parts that are used to build the core systems of their robots, but they won’t find an instruction manual. No two robots will be built or operated in exactly the same way! Students work with hundreds of components, including engineering mainstays such as programmable radio controllers, motors, electrical circuitry, pneumatic components and mechanical parts. Each team has to decide its own game strategy, and has to design and fabricate a machine within tight specifications on size, weight and materials.

Following the design and build phase, teams enter two of seven District competitions in the District of Columbia, Maryland, and Virginia. Teams compete for scores that will earn them a place at the FIRST Chesapeake District Championship. (Winners from FIRST Chesapeake will go on to compete at the FIRST World Championship in Detroit.)
