Description

Over 2,500 students representing 50 high school teams from Florida, plus international teams, will come together to participate in the 2018 FIRST® Robotics Competition (FRC®) South Florida Regional.

Join hundreds of teachers, families, mentors, and come see 4,500 pounds of metal, gears and electronics at the hands of super talented high school students. The FIRST® Robotics Competition (FRC) South Florida Regional will be held this year at the Palm Beach Convention Center, March 30th and 31st, 2018.

The FIRST® Robotics Competition (FRC) South Florida Regional offers students an opportunity to win regional recognition for design excellence, sportsmanship, teamwork, and more, and advance to the FIRST Championship competition in Houston, TX in April. Come catch the excitement of this gear grinding Sport for the Mind, cheer on teams, and learn how you can be part of the action!

The 2017 FIRST Robotics Competition game was FIRST STEAMWORKS - which invites two adventure clubs from an era in which technology relied on steam power to prepare their airships for the ultimate long distance race. Each three-team alliance scores points and prepares to take flight by building steam pressure, gathering materials to start the rotors, and boarding robots onto their airships. The adventurer club with the highest score at the end of the match is the best prepared for the race and wins. See the game animation video *here*. This year the game has not been revealed yet, but it promises to be just as amazing!

Qualifying matches are held on Friday, and Finals matches on Saturday. Admission for both days is FREE! Ticket holders can enjoy behind the scenes pit tours to see teams and their robots! (Closed toed shoes required for pit tours.)
