France’s 3rd edition of the FIRST Tech Challenge international robotics competition—hosted by Grenoble Institute of Technology—will be held on May 1415, 2014. The competition is open to high-school students; the number of teams participating soared from seven in 2012 to seventeen this year! Students from Grenoble Institute of Technology (Phelma, Esisar, ENSGI, and Ense3 engineering schools) will help the students through the various steps of building and programming a robot. The robots will be judged through a contest to see which one can put the most cubes into a crate.
The FIRST Tech Challenge in France is held in association with the Rhône-Alpes Region and two corporate sponsors: PTC and National Instruments. This year the City of Grenoble is also providing support by making the Reyniès-Bayard gymnasium available—which not only supplies a venue, but also helps boost the competition’s visibility.
