As part of their ongoing effort to promote programs in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM), Eastern Washington University with the assistance of Greater Spokane Incorporated will once again bring the FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) to EWU’s Reese Court Pavilion April 4-6.
The Spokane regional will bring more than 1,500 people to campus each day of the event. It is one of three regional robotics competitions statewide, and one of 57 in the U.S., with all participants hoping to make it to the national stage.
FRC combines the excitement of sport with the rigors of science and technology. It features a real-world challenge to be solved by research, critical thinking, construction, teamwork and imagination.
Winning teams from the EWU regional will advance to the FRC Championship in St. Louis, Mo., April 24-27 to compete against teams from the United States and around the world.
