The 2017 FIRST Robotics Competition game is called FIRST STEAMWorks - a steampunk themed engeineering challenge that requires teams of high school students that invites two adventure clubs - represented by alliance teams - from an era in which technology relied on steam power to prepare their airships for the ultimate long distance race. Teams have to score "fuel" in "boilers", power rotors and climb aboard the airships. Check out the the game animation video *here*.
Qualifying matches are held on Friday, and Finals matches on Saturday. The event runs from 10am to 5pm Friday and 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.)
