FIRST Nevada has announced an exciting and dynamic 2020-2021 robotics competition season with a variety of options for participating teams to get involved. This year’s season has been deemed FIRST Game Changers– powered by Star Wars: Force for Change and in partnership with Disney and Lucasfilms, the 20/21 season will have virtual events as well as hybrid solutions in accordance with safety guidelines.
The 20/21 season start date has been pushed back to give teams more preparation time and all events and workshops will be delivery virtually until the end of the calendar year. Students participating in FTC and FRC programs are still eligible for internships and scholarship opportunities.
In addition to the plan for modified events, FIRST Nevada has committed to covering this season’s registration fees for existing FIRST Lego League Challenge and FIRST Tech Challenge teams! More information on the details of this year’s team support will be shared soon by FIRST.
