FIRST Robotics Community Fair

Thank you to all who came out to the FIRST Robotics Community Fair that was held at the CLOUD901 Teen Learning Lab at the Benjamin L. Hooks Central Library.

A big thanks to L. Morris who organized the event, the staff of the CLOUD for hosting and the event and following FRC Teams for demonstrating their robots:

Team 5002 – Collierville Dragons
Team 5045 – White Station SpartaBots
Team 6815 – The CLOUD901 MechWarriors

It was great to see all the teams getting ready for the Gear Up season!

Big news from the event: Memphis is working towards a FRC Regional sometime after this coming season! Stay tuned for more info as it becomes available.

Start preparing now for the adventure that begins January 6, 2018.
Play for Real!

Jump into the fun and start or join a team today!

Be part of the more than 3,600 teams in 2018 comprised of 90,000 students and their adult mentors from around the world who will get to “play for real” in FIRST® POWER UPSM

FIRST® Robotics Competition is the ultimate Sport for the MindTM, where imagination and innovation come together! By combining the excitement of sport and beauty of art with the rigors of science and technology, teams of high school students (ages 14 – 18/grades 9 – 12) are challenged to design a team “brand,” hone teamwork skills, and build and program robots to perform tasks against a field of competitors.

Teams work together to build, program and test robots with the guidance of adult mentors. Teams then compete with their robots as family and friends cheer from the stands at more than 160 events worldwide – all leading up to the 2018 FIRST® Championship, April 18 – 21 in Houston, TX and April 25 – 28 in Detroit, MI.
