This year’s game marks the 20th season since FRC first began in 1992. The primary objective of the game is to position inner tubes shaped like regular polygons on pegs on either alliance wall. Two aspects of the game reflect the commemoration of the FIRST program. First, bonus points are awarded if the tubes are arranged to form a FIRST logo on the wall. Secondly, in efforts to foster cooperation and mentorship between FRC and FTC (FIRST Tech Challenge link) teams, a secondary objective of deploying a “Minibot” made primarily of FTC parts garners many points.
