Fans of robotics—and fans of spirited competition— won’t want to miss the FIRST Tech Challenge Virginia Championship on Saturday, February 22, from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at Atlee High School.

Sponsored by FIRST Chesapeake and Capital One, the event matches high school and middle school robotics teams from Virginia and Maryland to compete for a place at the upcoming national championship in Detroit.

With the guidance of adult coaches, teams build their robots and test their strategies. While vying for the top spot, they’ll also earn awards for creativity, community outreach, “gracious professionalism” and more.

The competition is fast-paced and fun!  Filled with loud and danceable music and cheering fans.

It’s also free and open to the public. Click here for more details, and make plans for a great Saturday!
