Spark City Robotics Team #3634
May 12 at 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Combining the excitement of sport with the rigors of science and technology. We call FIRST Robotics Competition the “ultimate Sport for the Mind”. High-school student participants call it “the hardest fun you’ll ever have.”
Under strict rules, limited time and resources, teams of 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. The team meets on Tuesdays at Fairfield University, in the Bannow Science Center.
