A Robotique FIRST Québec event in collaboration with Youth Fusion
In Quebec, the FIRST Tech Challenge program brings together 34 teams from some 23 organizations. 12 to 18 year-old students learn more than building robots.

Participants should be aware and accept that photos / videos may be taken during this event in the context of the webcasting of the event, training, documentation and promotion of Robotique FIRST Québec and FIRST programs and activities.
This year, the challenge plunges us into the world of the arts – the transmission of passions.
Two alliances – red and blue – made up of two robots each, play in a 12ft x 12ft field.
Match play includes a 30-second autonomous period followed by a two-minute driver-controlled period. The last thirty seconds of the game provide additional scoring opportunities.
Robots move around the field and set game pieces – pixels – into a back drop, behind the scene. At the end of the match, drones can be launched!
Teams hope to stand out for the playoff rounds by performing and accumulating points in the qualifying matches. All teams are also evaluated by a panel of judges and can win awards.
