FREIGHT FRENZY

Transportation drives us forward – impacting economies, bridging cultures, and making us all more globally interconnected.  FIRST® Tech Challenge teams will race against time to transport hard-to-move essential goods as they explore the future of transporting relief to those in need in 2021-2022 FREIGHT FRENZYSM presented by Raytheon Technologies.

We’re driving FIRST FORWARD: Full Speed Ahead.

In British Columbia, we’re planning for a season with Leagues, Qualifiers, and our Provincial Championships, likely in February 2022. Possibly, there will be an option for teams to compete remotely too.

FIRST® Tech Challenge encourages teams to design, build, program, and engage in thrilling robotics competitions. Guided by adult coaches and mentors, students develop STEM skills and practice engineering principles, while realizing the value of innovation and teamwork. The robot kit is reusable from year-to-year and can be coded using a variety of programming languages. Students are encouraged to create team brands and be an ambassador for FIRST and STEM in their communities.

The FIRST Tech Challenge season starts with Kick-off on Sept. 18, 2021 and will be followed by Workshops in October with the videos available on YouTube.
