FIRST Robotics CompetitionMark your calendar! Plan to attend the 7th annual Rhode Island FIRST® Tech Challenge robotics tournament on Saturday, February 9, 2013, sponsored by New England Institute of Technology. The mission of FIRST® (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) is to engage students in acquiring science, engineering and technology skills through the fun of creating a custom-designed robot. More than 30 Rhode Island high school teams will be on hand to test their skill on the competition field.

The FIRST® Tech Challenge will be held at NEIT’s Center for Automotive Technology located at 101 Access Road, in Warwick, RI, from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. This event is free and open to the public.

As the event sponsor, New England Tech will serve as the central point of contact for all participating high schools as well as various after school robotic teams. Join your high school team or create one of your own!
