Parkdale Robotic's Robo Panthers will be competing in the 2014 FIRST Robotics' competition. Nearly 70,000 high-school students on more than 2,700 teams in 92 cities around the globe will compete.

The 2014 game, AERIAL ASSIST, is played by two Alliances of three teams each. Alliances compete by trying to score as many balls in goals as possible during a two-minute and 30-second match. Additional points are earned by robots working together to score goals, and by throwing and catching balls over a truss suspended just over five feet above the floor as they move the ball down the field.

This competition is hosted by For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology (FIRST). Their mission is to show students of every age that science, technology, and problem-solving are not only fun and rewarding, but are proven paths to successful careers and a bright future for us all.  "The hardest fun they will ever have."
