FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) recently concluded its 18th competition for students in its home state of New Hampshire. More than 42,000 of them competed this year. Included was a new game called "Lunacy." Robots had to pick up 9" balls and get them in trailers attached to their opponents. Played on a low friction floor, teams had to deal with physics in addition to robotics. If you are a student, teacher or parent interested in the next one, contact FIRST. They have lots of information as well as scholarships available.
