This is an opportunity for FRC teams (Veteran, Rookie, and Pre-Rookie) from all over Georgia and beyond to come together one more time after the end of the competition season. Share experiences, learn from each other, build new friendships, practice and compete with robots, and have fun! This is also an opportunity to bring new team members, mentors, or sponsors up to speed on what FIRST is really all about.


Teams from all over Georgia and beyond are coming together in Atlanta. Come watch robots compete in the 2015 FIRST Robotics Competition game – Recycle Rush!  The 120lb robots compete in 3 team alliances and score by passing and shooting giant exercise balls through end goals much like basketball.
