An action packed robotics competition at Deep Creek Lake? You better beleive it.
Each year, thousands of teams compete in local, state and national FIRST Tech Challenge (FTC) robotics competitions. The ultimate goal is to earn an invitation to the World Championship in Detroit Michigan in April.
This year, G-FORCE (FTC2818) is the host team for the Mountain Maryland FTC Qualifier. The event will be held in the CARC Gym at Garrett College, and is sponsored by GEARS Inc.
28 teams of students from around the area will travel to Garrett County with their robots, to compete for 5 advancement spots to the MD State competition. Garrett College is providing this excellent venue to promote their growing STEM capabilities, and we hope that teams visiting this event will consider Garrett College for their further education.
The event follows a typical sports style model with qualifiers and playoffs throughout the day. The action is exciting, and the event is free to the general public. See the schedule link to plan your visit to watch the action.
