Robotics Demonstration 5 pm – 8 pm
FIRST Robotics Competition is an international high school robotics competition. Each year, teams of high school students, coaches, and mentors work during a six-week period to build game-playing robots that compete in difficult field games. The program is designed to provide students an experience that is as close to real-world engineering as they can get.
Roush is a very proud sponsor of several area robotics teams that participate in the FIRST Robotics events. Two of the teams that Roush sponsors, the Livonia Warriors and the South Lyon Flying Toasters, will be demonstrating their robots’ abilities and sharing information about the First Robotics program from 5:00 pm to 8:00 pm at today’s Open House event.
The Warriors were formed in 2009 and are now in their 11th season of FIRST Robotics Competitions. Since starting, the Livonia Warriors are proud to have qualified for the Michigan State Championship and the World Championship.
The Flying Toasters have been around since 2006. 2018 marks their eighth year competing in FRC. Recent achievements include being named Championship Subdivision Finalists in the 2019 Detroit World Competition, and District Championship Subdivision Finalists in the 2019 Michigan State Championship.
