Allied Automation is proud to once again sponsor the 2016 FIRST Robotic Competition. At FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology),it is their mission to inspire young people to be science and technology leaders, by engaging them in exciting Mentor-based programs that build science, engineering,and technology skills, that inspire innovation, and that foster well-rounded life capabilities including self-confidence, communication, and leadership.Under strict rules, limited resources, and an intense six-week time limit, teams of 20 or more students are challenged to raise funds, design a team “brand,” hone teamwork skills, and build and program industrial-size robots to play a difficult field game against like-minded competitors.
It’s as close to real-world engineering as a student can get. Volunteer professional mentors lend their time and talents to guide each team. Each season ends with an exciting FIRST Championship. Attendees will see the 2016 FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) game, FIRST STRONGHOLD, in action, interact one-on-one with our students, and enjoy complimentary refreshments at this informal, family-friendly event! We recommend wearing close-toed shoes to tour the team pit area, where you will see the students working on their robots between matches.
If you would like to attend the event, please RSVP by March 10th, 2016 to Renee Becker-Blau at firstname.lastname@example.org or 414-704-1415.
