FIRST Robotics Competition in MA: NE WPI District Event presented by National Grid

Since the year 2000, WPI has hosted an FRC Regional competition for multiple years, two New England District Championships, many district qualifiers...and one of the best off-season competitions in the region! As a Platinum Scholarship Provider for FIRST, WPI is also a huge supporter of the program in general.

Worcester Polytechnic Institute in Worcester, MA, was excited to host 40 teams from Connecticut, New Hampshire, Vermont and Massachusetts for the 2023 NE District WPI Event.

Special thanks to the event's Presenting Sponsor, National Grid, and to all of the WPI alumni and students that made the competition a success. The WPI District Event beat out the Hartford District Event's playoffs high score of 172, with a current district high score of 175!
