First Robotics Regional Championship Friday
The FIRST Robotics Regional Championship kicks off at RIT Friday.
The weekend event is a chance for local teams to move on to nationals next month.
Local teams kicked off the season last month with the Rochester Rally at Penfield High School. Each year teams build robots to play different "games."
It gives students a chance to practice math, physics and engineering in a fun way.
YNN's parent company Time Warner Cable is a proud sponsor of the regional championship as well as the McQuaid Jesuit team "the IgKnighters."
