Each year FIRST Robotics Competition teams compete in an alliance of three robots against another alliance to play the game challenge. Each year’s theme is released the first Saturday in January. Teams have exactly six weeks from the game announcement to design, build and program their robot before their stop build date. Worldwide this time allotment is the same so every team has the same opportunity for success. These 120 pound robots compete in both an autonomous and teleoperated period for a total of two and a half minutes. The game is played on a 54’ X 26’ field.
