FIRST New York City Robotics Competition and Expo

April 6 - April 8

| Free

This year’s competing teams are part of the FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC), in which high school students are challenged to put their custom-built robots to the test in a sports-style tournament. FIRST POWER UP, the 2018 FRC game, finds our teams trapped in an 8bit video game! Teams use power cubes to defeat the boss.

The multi-day tournament also includes a series of exciting expos, robot and LEGO demos, college and career fairs, plus an Alumni Panel where FIRST alumni will answer questions about college, job search, networking, and life after FIRST.

College Expo: Friday 4/6 – 12pm – 4pm
