This year’s FIRST Robotics Competition is called DESTINATION: DEEP SPACE. Two alliances, each consisting of three robots, compete in a space themed game.
The Robotichauns will attend two regional competitions this year: The Palmetto Regional in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, and The Smoky Mountain Regional in Knoxville, Tennessee. The team’s ultimate goal is to qualify for the FIRST National Championship in Houston, Texas.
The 2019 “Build Season” begins with the FIRST Robotics Competition kickoff event (January 5) and concludes with “Bag and Tag” night (February 19). During this time the team meets at Knoxville Catholic High School every Monday through Friday from 4:00 pm to 8:00 pm and Saturday 8:00 am to 4:00 pm
