The Monterey Bay Area is excited to host its inaugural FIRST Robotics Competition March 22 – Mar 24, 2019.  Hosted at Seaside High School, the competition is an intense three-day competitive event showcasing robots built and operated by 36 high school teams from all over the world. There are 12 FRC teams in the greater Monterey Bay area and they are all excited to share the California central coast with visiting teams.

Teams have six weeks to design, build, and program a robot that will meet the challenges set forth in early January.  Their hard work culminates in local competitions around the world, as teams vie for coveted spots at the FIRST World Championships.  We’re pleased to be bring this exciting and inspiring competition to Monterey Bay.
