FIRST® Chesapeake District Blacksburg Event In March 2019
March 29, 2019

FIRST Chesapeake District Blacksburg VA Event is scheduled for March 30-31, 2019. The event will be held at Blacksburg High School, 3410 Bruin Ln, Blacksburg, VA 24060.

This event is free and open to the public!

Forty of the best and brightest high school robotics teams will be competing in this two day event. Come out and cheer on your favorite team or learn more about bringing FIRST Robotics Programs to your community.

FIRST Robotics Competition is recognized as the premier high school engineering challenge. Teams of students, working closely with teachers and volunteer mentors, have six weeks to conceptualize, design, build, program, modify and test a robot to participate in a competition that changes each year. Every January, FIRST unveils the challenge or “game” at an annual kick-off event that is simulcast to locations around the world.

Following a six-week design and build phase, teams enter two of seven District competitions in the District of Columbia, Maryland, and Virginia. Teams compete for scores that will earn them a place at the FIRST Chesapeake District Championship. (Winners from FIRST Chesapeake will compete at the FIRST World Championship in Detroit.)
