As part of its continuing commitment to science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) programs, Eastern Washington University and the College of Science, Health and Engineering will again be hosting a FIRST Robotics Competitions (FRC) on March 13-15, 2014 at EWU's Reese Court Pavilion. This is organized in collaboration with Greater Spokane Incorporated (GSI) , FIRST Washington and many additional community partners.
FRC features a real-world challenge to be solved by research, critical thinking, construction, teamwork and imagination. It combines the excitement of sport with the rigors of science and technology. Eastern has previously hosted both the annual FIRST LEGO League (FLL) competition with its focus on fourth through eighth grade participants as well as thhe FRC event which provides a bigger stage, a bigger challenge and focuses on high school team participation. The Spokane District FRC (hosted at EWU in Cheney) is one of ten district events in the Pacific Northwest.
