Since 2000, students from Lancaster High School (Lancaster, CA) have gathered to participate in the FIRST Robotics Competition. As an extracurricular program, students gather to build a robot to perform tasks revealed by the organization known as FIRST. These tasks form a game in which students have the chance to apply concepts taught in the classroom and work along side professionals.
FIRST is an international organization that seeks to inspire students to pursue careers in science, engineering and technology.
ULTIMATE ASCENT is played by two competing alliances of 3 robots and compete to score as many discs into their goals as they can during a two (2)-minute and fifteen (15)-second match. Read More about this year's game!
