Last year I did a GameTek segment about the FIRST robotics competition, for high school students.

The teams are assigned a crazy hard game, and have to build a robot in just 7 weeks to play. This year's game is called Logomotion, and here are the rules and a quick overview of the game:



The first round of regional competitions have just been completed, and I am very proud to announce that the team that I help mentor - Team 303, Panther Robotics - was just part of the championship alliance for the New Jersey Regional! Special thanks to teams 1676 and 2016 for picking us to join their alliance.

So we're off to St. Louis for the World Championships at the end of April!

Congrats to all the kids on all the teams who put in such long hours to put together amazing machines.

FIRST is a great competition, and if you're interested in technology, games, kids, or all through, I encourage you to get involved if you can.
