FIRST World Championships @ Cobo Hall
Apr 24 – Apr 27 all-day

AGain this year the FIRST world championship events are split between two locations–Houston and Detroit.  We qualified for the world championships in St. Louis in 2016 (when they were still a single event).  We will work hard to make it back to Worlds this year.

Here is a link to information about the Detroit World event: https://www.firstchampionship.org/detroit-home.  We attended the event last year because there are many useful conference sessions at Worlds.  (We snuck into watch a few matches, too.)  The FIRST world event is more exciting than any other high school competitive event we know about.  If you can make it there even for a day, we encourage you to go.  It’s all free for general attendance at the matches and for all conference events.

Save the Dates – bIrobot Robotics Summer Camp @ Beaver Island Community School
Aug 5 – Aug 9 all-day

Interested in robots? Programming? Save these tentative dates for the 2019 bIrobot Summer Robotics Camp at Beaver Island Community School.  Design and build a robot to meet challenges in a game revealed at the start of camp. Team up with others and compete as an alliance against other teams to see who can score the most points. You’ll build and program a robot the first day of camp and then build on those skills to complete a week-long version of a FIRST FRC season. The grand finale will be a competition among the teams, to find the best robot. But everyone will win with a great experience. Your mentors will be the bIrobot FIRST FRC team, veterans of three FRC seasons, along with their coach, who teaches programming and robotics at BICS. No prior programming or robotics experience is required, but those with experience will still find plenty to challenge them.

Check back here for sign-up information.  Summer residents and vacation visitors are welcome.  You need not be a student at BICS to attend.
