FIRST Robotics for All Ages 

FIRST Robotics has opportunities for students of all age levels to participate in their programs. Rockford Robotics is involved in several local programs, either as a team or as volunteers. Check out some of our recent activities. 
On November 2, John, Jason, and Carter form North Park Water visited our shop to explain drinking water treatment and distribution to our FIRST Lego League (FLL) team, the Rockford Rovers. NPW provides drinking water for Loves Park and surrounding areas. This year's FLL Game Challenge, HYDRO DYNAMICS, asks students to learn more about how we find, use, transport, and dispose of water.
On November 7, Rockford Robotics, our FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) team, held a planning meeting for the upcoming season. Students, parents, and mentors discussed leadership, logistics, and scheduling for the upcoming season. We are excited to welcome new students and mentors to our team.
And on November 11, nearly 20 Rockford Robotics Team Members volunteered at the first 2017 Rockford League meet for FIRST Tech Challenge (FTC). Volunteers served in positions as varied as Field and Robot Inspector, Emcee, Field Assembly & Reset, Scorekeeper, Referee, and Queuers. Special thanks to Eric Williams for serving as Volunteer Coordinator and Event Director. The many local FIRST Events with not be possible without the help of dedicated volunteers.
