About the Event

The Bloomington District Event is Presented by the Indiana Army National Guard.

Join over 40 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 Bloomington, Mishawaka, Columbus, and Indianapolis. Teams will advance from the State Championship to represent Indiana at the World Championship in Detroit, MI on April 29th – May 2nd.

Severe Airborne Peanut / Tree Nut Allergy – Please Be Aware

In order to maintain a supportive and inclusive environment, FIRST Indiana Robotics is asking our teams to keep the following things in mind:

  1. Please keep peanuts / tree nuts out of the pit area (as a reminder, food is not allowed in the pits).
  2. Consider removing peanuts / tree nuts from team meals and snacks.
  3. Please stay aware of your surroundings when eating at the event and take time to wash your hands after a meal.

FIRST Indiana Robotics recognizes that, as this is a public event, we cannot maintain a 100% nut free zone or prevent people from bringing these items into the building. We appreciate any support you can provide in our efforts to reduce contact with the allergen.
