The FIRST Chesapeake Programs Expo and FTC Scrimmage Sponsored by Qualcomm will be held on October 15th at the Science Museum of Western Virginia

This event, as well as museum admission, are FREE for this day only!

See robotics exhibits from LEGOs to 120+ pound FIRST Robotics Competition robots. Test your skill driving a demo robot. Learn more about volunteering or starting a FIRST robotics program in your school. This FREE event is great fun for the entire family, from kindergarten to grandparents.



Does your team want to compete in the FTC scrimmage or be an FRC exhibitor? This a great outreach opportunity. They also need a referee for the field and volunteers to answer visitor questions about FIRST.
