40 Teams to Compete at Kettering University FIRST Robotics District Contest

FLINT, Mich. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — February 28, 2011 — Forty high school teams from around Michigan will compete March 4-5 at the 2011 Kettering University FIRST Robotics District competition in Flint. All events are free and open to the public in Kettering’s Recreation Center from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday, March 4, and 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, March 5.

FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) is a national youth effort to inspire careers in engineering, science and technology.

This year’s game is LOGO MOTION, which features the colorful triangle, circle and square in FIRST’s logo. See a video on the game at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OE5_snXNbdk&feature=related.

“It’s fitting that the 20th anniversary of FIRST uses the imagery that helped this important organization get started – the triangle, circle and square,” said Bob Nichols, Kettering’s director of External Affairs. “Gracious Professionalism and having fun are still the centerpieces of FIRST,” he said.
