NE FIRST + BAE Systems Minibot Challenges

Updated: Feb 3


When the pandemic hit, we had no idea how we would keep our teams engaged throughout the 2021 season. With an energetic committee of great minds, the BAE Systems Mini-Bot Challenge was designed and born featuring four competitions among our New England FRC teams. Each team received a Romi robot courtesy of BAE Systems, a game play mat courtesy of Eversource Energy, Historic Map Works and TurnOne Graphics; golf balls courtesy of Titleist, programming support from Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) (WPI)/wpilib.org and a live alliance competition courtesy of GoFAR, Yale University and New England FIRST.
