Every year FIRST presents a different game filled with new challenges to test students’ engineering skills, strategic thinking and team work abilities. In this year’s "LOGO Motion" challenge, two alliances of three teams each will compete on a 27-by-54-foot field with poles, attempting to earn points by hanging as many triangle, circle and square logo pieces as possible. Teams earn bonus points for each robot that can hang pieces in the form of the FIRST logo and successfully deploy an independent mini-bot to climb vertical poles on the field of play.

The teams have only six weeks to create their robots using a starter kit of parts containing motors, batteries and various automation components but no other directives. Students are supported by professional mentors, teachers, and volunteers and use teamwork, entrepreneurship and critical thinking to achieve victory against their peers.
