FIRST Robotics Kick-Off Event

Date: Saturday, January 3, 2015

Time: 9:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m.

Where: NASA Wallops Visitor’s Center

NASA, the US Navy, and Eastern Shore Robotics (local non-profit organization) are sponsoring the 20th annual FIRST Robotics Kick-Off event on Saturday, January 3, at the Wallops NASA Visitor’s Center. Doors open at 9:00 am. At this event students will learn the details of the 2015 Robotic Challenge. Locally, students from Northampton, Accomack, Worcester, Somerset, and Wicomico counties will be participating this season. Students have 6 weeks to build a robot to compete against teams from around the world. $19 million in college scholarships is available to participating students. While some teams are school-sponsored, many teams are not. Students rely on the expertise of mentors from their community, local businesses, industry, and schools for guidance. Team Fundraising and charitable outreach efforts depend on community support. NASA Wallops Flight Facility sponsors four local teams representing Northampton and Accomack counties in Virginia and representing Worcester and Wicomico Counties in Maryland. All NASA WFF-sponsored teams will participate in this Kickoff Event and they are excited to share their FIRST Robotics experience with you.

Please join us and learn how your area high school students are spending their “free-time”. As a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) event, you will be amazed at how well YOUR students are implementing the very principles and methods they are learning in the classroom!!!
