The Bayou Regional FIRST Robotics Competition
The Bayou Regional may be the home field for FIRST Robotics Competition teams competing in Louisiana and Mississippi, but in the spirit of Gracious Professionalism, teams from around the world are welcomed to compete as friends and equals. These high-school level robotics teams, with the guidance of adult mentors, have 6 weeks to design, build, and program their competitive robot to perform a series of tasks as sport, using offense, defense, quick thinking, and scouting techniques. To build a successful robot, teams must use code and programming, CAD, mechanical and electrical engineering, automation, and robotics. Upon completion, these teams bring their robot to the Pontchartrain Center in Kenner, Louisiana, where they compete with other LA and MS teams as well as with visiting teams from around the world, for a spot at the super bowl of smarts, the FIRST Robotics Competition World Championship.
The 2018 Bayou Regional Competition will take place at the Pontchartrain Center
MARCH 23-25, 2018
