FIRST Chesapeake District Championships

One event on April 5, 2020 at 8:00 am
Free and open to the public! Eighty of the best and brightest high school robotics teams will be competing in this two-field, 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 combines the excitement of sports with the rigors of science. Under strict rules, limited resources, and the guidance of volunteer mentors including engineers, teachers, business professionals, parents, alumni and more, teams of 25+ students build and program robots to perform challenging tasks against a field of competitors. Teams must also raise funds, design a team “brand,” hone teamwork skills, and perform community outreach. In addition to learning valuable STEM and life skills, participants are eligible to apply for $80 million in college scholarships.
