GaCo Hosts FIRST Fun Day May 18, 2019

Last Updated on May 13, 2019 at 1:36pm

FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) Team 1629, GaCo, will be hosting a “FIRST Fun Day” this Saturday, May 18, 2019, at Northern Middle School. The robotics teams from all four grade-leveled FIRST programs (FLL Jr, FLL, FTC, and FRC) will share their robots from last season in a fun, friendly, non-competitive format. Activities are planned from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM.
The purpose of the FIRST Fun Day is to give teams the opportunity to share and for anyone interested in FIRST Robotics to find out more. According a GaCo spokesperson, “Teams have worked hard to build and compete with their robots during the regular season. This event will give them another opportunity to share and celebrate their success.”
FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) is the world’s leading youth robotics nonprofit advancing STEM Education and is currently celebrating its thirtieth anniversary. As with all FIRST events, the public is invited free of charge. For more information, contact or call 301-616-3231.
