THE GAMES

ROBOTICON Live Online! 2020-21 Games

Each season in the early fall, FIRST LEGO League, and FIRST Tech Challenge teams learn their new season challenge. FIRST Robotics Competition teams get their game revealed in January each year. At ROBOTICON, FIRST Robotics Competition teams have an opportunity to play the previous season’s game, while the other program levels will be trying their hands and minds on their current season challenges.    

This fall, it’s FIRST Game Changers! And ROBOTICON 2020 is changing the game to go online, national and international.  COVID-19 has been a game changer for all of us, but we look at it as an opportunity to explore new ways of doing things, rather than an obstacle to learning.   

Stay tuned , and sign up to be first in line for program updates!

FIRST Tech Challenge – Skystone

FIRST Tech Challenge, for  youth in 7th to 12th grade,  challenges teams to design, build, program, and operate robust small scale robots in an alliance format.  FIRST Tech Challenge robots use an Android operating system in an accessible, real world engineering experience that’s guided by adult Coaches and Mentors.  Students also keep an engineering notebook to document their build processes.

The 2019-20 game is called Skystone and asks students, “What if you could build a better world? Where would you begin?” More than ever, we must come together to innovate and solve problems. In FIRST, you are part of a thriving community brimming with inspiration, creativity, and hope for a stronger, more sustainable future—one that’s built better together.  We’ll be changing up FIRST Skystone a bit, too.

Game manuals and resources are on the FIRST Tech Challenge page at FIRSTInspires.org
