OWENSBORO, KY (WFIE) -
Owensboro Community and Technical College is hosting a head-to-head robotics competition Saturday, Feb. 23, for students ages 14-18 years.
FIRST Tech Challenge (FTC) is an international robotics competition where students are responsible for designing, building, and programming unique robots to compete in a sports themed arena. The winning team from this event will automatically receive an invitation to the FIRST Tech Challenge World Championship in St. Louis, MO. This year's theme, Ring It Up!, is a course that challenges teams to collect and lift plastic rings onto pegs of varying heights for points while identifying weighted rings, with the use of sensors, for point multipliers. Teams are assigned to an alliance and will run their robots on the field for a total of 2.5 minutes to try to earn as many points possible. Owensboro Community & Technical College, Time Warner Cable, Domtar, and AMTEC are sponsoring this year's event.
The 2013 FTC event will be the fourth state championship held in Kentucky. 28 teams are scheduled to compete, representing a total of 11 states, including Florida, Alabama, Missouri, Wisconsin, and Mississippi. 11 teams are representing Kentucky including local teams from Daviess County High School and Heritage Hills High School.
The majority of Kentucky teams are first-year rookie teams participating through funding of the National Science Foundation's Discover STEM: Generation Innovation grant received by OCTC in Fall 2011. Other Kentucky and Southern Indiana teams are able to participate thanks to funding from the Alcoa Foundation through a grant received in September 2012 to promote STEM through robotics programming. All teams began preparing for this competition after the FTC Kick-Off Extravaganza hosted by OCTC on September 15, 2012.
For more information about the OCTC's FIRST Tech Challenge please contact Jessica Cecil at 270.686.4613 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
