The 2019-2020 FIRST® Robotics Competition challenge is Infinite Recharge!
Renewable sources of energy are everywhere, all the time. Working together in the 2020 season of FIRST® Robotics Competition, INFINITE RECHARGESM, we can support boundless innovation and create a society that’s empowered, inspired, and hopeful.
In INFINITE RECHARGESM, two alliances work to protect FIRST City from approaching asteroids caused by a distant space skirmish. Each Alliance, along with their trusty droids, race to collect and score Power Cells in order to energize their Shield Generator for maximum protection. To activate stages of the Shield Generator, droids manipulate their Control Panels after scoring a specific number of Power Cells. Near the end of the match, droids race to their Rendezvous Point to get their Shield Generator operational in order to protect the city!
