Week 2 in New England FRC: #NEPineTree and #NE_Waterbury

Updated: Mar 22, 2022

The FIRST Robotics Competition and RAPID REACT spanned all of New England during Week 2, with our two events representing the furthest north and furthest south locations on our schedule.


The Pine Tree District Event welcomed 26 teams from Maine, Massachusetts and New Hampshire at Thomas College in Waterville, ME. Under sunshine, rain, and even some snow, we crowned champions and earned a little extra daylight between Friday, March 11th, and Sunday, March 13th.
