FIRST is a program that gets high school kids interested in Science Technology, Engineering and Math. The program assigns teams a game in Jan, and they have 6.5 weeks to design, build, and ship a robot. This year's game: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iheq7yar5c4
Last year's national champion will be competing at the WI and IL regionals.

I plan on going on the 13th, and am willing to give a ride to other sector67 members.

There is also one in Chicago the week after: http://www.ilfrc.org/index.php?option=c ... 6&itemid=6

I was a judge for the Madison local competition earlier this year, had a lot of fun watching the grade/middleschool kids working on their robots and the really varied strategies they had to gain points.

Overall was really fun, I'd definitely recommend it if anyone gets the opportunity to help/judge/watch!
