Join in the fun as robots take center stage!

MOREnet will be streaming the FIRST Regional Robotics Competition in Kansas City March 7-8 and other competition-related content to audiences world-wide! This real-time broadcast and some live, interactive videoconferences will deliver the excitement of the competition to classmates, parents, sponsors, other competitors, and interested viewers around the globe. Watch high-tech robots designed and built by students achieve amazing feats as they compete for a place at the FIRST Robotics national championship in April.

Schools, libraries and communities around the country can participate in the event even if they don’t have FIRST Robotics Teams! Students on the robotics teams use skills across many subject areas – geometry, physics, engineering, industrial technology, computer programming, communications and many others! Your students can have a chance to see these subjects come to life in the robotics competition!

In addition libraries around the country can declare Robotics Day and add this resource to others in the field of Robotics for a day of exciting programming.

  • Schedule a videoconference with a FIRST team at the competition and learn first-hand about their experiences designing and building a robot, as well as competing with other students from around the country. Learn also how the FIRST experience has helped them in school, and how your community could get started in FIRST Robotics!
  • Your class or library can watch live streaming video of the competition and other competition-related content.
  • Schedule a field trip to a FIRST Robotics Competition in your area. If you visit the Kansas City regional, MOREnet staff will be on hand to answer any questions. Visit for a list of regional competitions and dates.

Visit to see all the exciting activities from last year’s competition!

We look forward to hearing from you!
