The students have spent six weeks designing and building two robots for the competition. Robots from 54 schools from all over the east coast and beyond will compete in teams of three to place game pieces on a 12 foot vertical board while trying to keep their opponents from doing the same thing. Then a minibot must be deployed from the larger robot on a given signal and race up a vertical pole to the top. The matches will be filled with action and excitement, and the venue will be filled with cheering fans, dancing mascots, and music.
In addition to spreading the message of FIRST, the Robo-Lions are passionate about science, technology, engineering, and math and inspire others. The team strives to motivate its members to become tomorrow’s next great scientists and inventors, while having lots of fun along the way. The preliminary matches and opening ceremonies will take place on Friday, March 18, and culminate in the elimination rounds on the afternoon of Saturday, March 19.
