FIRST Indiana Robotics is excited to announce that we will be airing the FIRST Robotics Competition state championship live on Comcast.
The event will be Friday, April 15th, and Saturday, April 16th at Rose Hulman Institute of Technology. The broadcast will air during the entirety of the event with many opportunities for promotional pieces to run.
High school teams have had since January 8th to design, prototype, fabricate, manufacture, and program from scratch four-foot-tall and 125-pound robots that compete three again three on a basketball court-sized field.
The game this year is called, RAPID REACT. In RAPID REACT presented by The Boeing Company, two competing alliances are invited to process cargo for transportation. Each alliance is assigned a cargo color (red or blue, based on alliance affiliation)to process by retrieving their assigned cargo and scoring it into the hub. Human players assist the cargo retrieval and scoring efforts from within their terminals. In the final moments of each match, alliance robots race to engage with their hangar to prepare for transport!
The teams are trying to qualify for one of seven spots for the World Championship that will take place in Houston, Texas April 20th - 23rd.
