FIRST IN SHOW Act 4: NE FIRST Western NE District Event 2024

On the other side of the Bay State, FRC teams took the stage and played competitive CRESCENDO matches. More and more teams are done with their qualifying events and waiting impatiently to see who will qualify for next week!

Western New England University hosted 36 FRC teams from Massachusetts, Connecticut, New Hampshire and Vermont. Special thanks to the Department of Industrial Engineering and Manufacturing, and to Provost Dr. Maria Toyoda for welcoming us to the University!
