Free Robotics Competition

Have you seen 120 pound robots shoot boulders, go over castle defenses, defend and scale a tower? If not, watch as 42 FIRST® Robotics Competition high school student teams from around the region compete on a specially designed castle themed field at the 3rd annual Texas Regional Invitational (T.R.I.).  This free family event is on Saturday, June 25th from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. at Strake Jesuit College Preparatory  located at 8900 Bellaire Blvd, Houston, TX, 77036. Come watch all the fast paced action! It is a video game come to life.

T.R.I. is organized by Spectrum #3847, a FIRST Robotics Team from Houston, Texas. T.R.I.’s goal is to introduce families to science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) and how much fun it can be. Spectrum #3847 is made up of high school students from St. Agnes Academy and Strake Jesuit College Preparatory two Catholic college preparatory schools in southwest Houston, Texas.

FIRST® Robotics Competition

FIRST® is an acronym for: "For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology". The FIRST® Robotics Competition (FRC) is an annual extra curricular activity for High School students to design, build, and operate point-scoring robots with help from community mentors. The mission for FIRST® is to inspire young people to be science and technology leaders, by engaging them in exciting mentor-based programs that build science, engineering and technology skills, that inspire innovation, and that foster well-rounded life capabilities including self-confidence, communication, and leadership. It’s as close to "real-world engineering" as a student can get!

FIRST® FRC is a six-week competition program for high-school students to build 120 pound (54 kg) robots that can complete a task that changes every year using standard set of parts, plus any additional off-the-shelf or custom parts. The winning teams from those tournaments join the global competition at FIRST® Championship.

In 2017, Houston will be hosting the FIRST® Championships until 2020 at George R. Brown Convention Center, Toyota Center, and Minute Maid Park.
