About the Event

Join over 30 high school FRC teams as they compete on a basketball court sized field with 4ft tall, 120lb robots! A team of high school students had six weeks to design and build a fully functional robot to compete in this year’s challenge. Teams will qualify for the State Championship through their performance at our district events that will take place in Mishawaka, Indianapolis, and West Lafayette. Teams will advance from the State Championship to represent Indiana at the World Championship in Detroit, MI on April 24th – 27th.
