Two robots facing off at competition

Some of Ontario and Michigan's brightest high school students will once again converge on the University of Waterloo's campus for the FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) Robotics Waterloo Regional Competition. This public event is free and welcomes adults and children of all ages. See if your high school alma mater is competing this year!

The FIRST Robotics Competition is a series of short games played by remote-controlled robots. The robots are designed and built within six weeks, from a common set of basic parts, by a team of students and engineer-mentors. The competition has grown to over 2,100 teams from 13 countries competing in 58 regional events, and culminates in the championship event in St. Louis with more than 10,000 student participants.
