FIRST South Carolina will host the inaugural Peachtree Hartsville District Event at the Coker University Deloach Center. This is the first time South Carolina has hosted two events at which a FIRST® Robotics Competition team can qualify for the District Championship! Coker University will host hundreds of high school students to compete in the robotics competition, hoping to earn a spot at the Peachtree District Championship. The competition will be held from Thursday, March 23, to Saturday, March 25.
FIRST® is a global, nonprofit robotics community that prepares young people for the future through exciting and accessible K-12 robotics competitions. This year’s FIRST Robotics Competition game is called CHARGED UP. Each attending team has had two months to design, prototype, build, test, and practice with their robot before competing against each other. Local teams, including Clover Eagle Robotics, Florence’s Technomancers, and the Technical Terminators from Mullins, will be able to show off their robots at the competition.
