FIRST IN SHOW Act 3: NE FIRST URI District Event 2024

Updated: Mar 31

Week 3 in New England was the perfect time for a trilogy: our only weekend with three distinct FRC events running at the same time, each in a different New England state.

The University of Rhode Island hosted 29 teams from Rhode Island, Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and even all the way from Vermont during this Week 3 event in Kingston.

Thank you to special guests from the University, including President Mark Parlange, College of Engineering Dean Anthony Marchese and Oceanography Professor Chris Roman for welcoming teams to your historic campus!
