FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) is referred to as “the varsity sport for the mind,” which combines the excitement of sport with the rigors of science and technology. Teams of at least 25 students raise funds, design team “brands”, hone teamwork skills, and build/program robots to perform prescribed tasks against competitors. Tulane supports this program by providing board members, tournament organizers, mentors and volunteers. The FRC Bayou Regional for LA and MS teams is scheduled for March 2019 (exact dates TBD).
