This is also an opportunity to bring new team members, mentors, or sponsors up to speed on what FIRST is really all about.

Come watch robots compete in the 2014 FIRST Robotics Competition game – Aerial Assist!  The 120lb robots compete in 3 team alliances and score by passing and shooting giant exercise balls through end goals much like basketball.
