Every year, students participating in the FIRST Robotics Competition are presented with a game challenge and the students have 6 weeks to design and build a robot to compete against teams from all over the USA and 40 other countries.
Parents, teachers, business men and women, mechanics, and NAVY and NASA engineers volunteer time and resources to work with the students. At a minimum, students learn the value of teamwork, they learn how to apply their math and science skills to “real-world” problems, they are exposed to engineering careers, and a few students emerge as leaders among their peers.
All students involved in this program have the opportunity to apply for $14 million in college scholarships. Our local team is made up of students from Nandua High School, Arcadia HS, Pocomoke HS, Worcester Tech, Snowhill HS, and “home-schoolers”. This year Team 1829 will compete in Richmond, VA and they will travel to St. Louis, MO for the FIRST Robotics Championship. To help offset expenses, Team 1829 is hosting a “Call of Duty” video game tournament on Saturday, March 5.
We will continue our build time right up until the end of March and you are more than welcome to check out our progress. Students work daily from 4pm – 7pm.
Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions.
