The 5th French edition of the international FIRST Tech Challenge robotics competition, organized by Grenoble Institute of Technology, will be held on May 11–12 in Fontaine. Around twenty high-school-student teams are expected to enter their robots—built and programmed according to specifications provided before the event using supplies provided by the organizer. As in previous years, the robots will have to demonstrate their agility as they pick up balls and cubes on the competition floor. In 2016 competitors will face a new challenge: a 30° incline the robots will have to climb before depositing the objects collected. And, to spice things up even more, the robots will also have to climb over three bars around twenty centimeters off the ground. Stay tuned to see how they did!
