FAMU Hosts Regional FIRST Robotics Competition
Hundreds of students from different parts of the country competed in the world-renowned robotics program, For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology, also known as FIRST Robotics, at the Lawson Multipurpose Center at Florida A&M University (FAMU) March 17-19, 2022.
Excitement was in the air as robots and students tested their wits and tech skills against each other. Loud music pumped up the crowd, while the sounds of clanging metal, the whirring of wheels, and the thump of basketball like cargo balls brought cheers from the audience.
FAMU President Larry Robinson, Ph.D., Farrukh Alvi, Ph.D., interim dean of the FAMU-FSU College of Engineering, and Chris Moore, the new CEO of FIRST, were some of the dignitaries in attendance.
