As we prepare for another season of competition, we would like to share a message from Marie E. Hopper of FIRST® North Carolina:
Many thanks to everyone for your thoughts and words of encouragement during this really stressful time for North Carolina.
While Hurricane Florence made landfall as "only" a category 1 storm, the real challenges we are coping with is the massive
flooding from the slow-moving system and the rivers which finally crested yesterday.
We have ten FRC teams that have been impacted by this storm and we have set up a Hurricane Florence Robot Rescue fund to help these teams get back on their feet. If you have a social media team, we would appreciate if they could repost or link to our website and facebook page to help the community help our teams:

Teams of students, working closely with teachers and volunteer mentors, have six weeks to conceptualize, design, build, program, modify and test a robot to participate in a competition that changes each year.
