Participate in the FIRST® Robotics Competition Iowa Regional. Combining the excitement of sport with the rigors of science and technology, the FIRST Robotics Competition Iowa Regional will bring together more than 40 teams from the Midwest to compete in the University of Northern Iowa McLeod Center. Each high school team will design, build, and program their robot to play this year’s game, Rapid React. During each match, witness two brand-new alliances of 3 robots each face off against each other. Come join us as we celebrate 7 years of FIRST Robotics Competition Regional events for Iowa teams!
