Game rules and updates can be found on wplib.org

We also have video updates on the New England FIRST You Tube Channel produced by our own volunteers of the year James Lockman and Jim Gorham.

For ongoing questions on the challenges, we have set up a permanent Discord Channel where you can post and receive answers about the challenges from the wpilib.org teams!

Good luck teams!

We have also developed a draft schedule for the remaining challenges so you can begin to build a calendar with your students. And if your team is not able to participate in the first challenge, you can still participate in the remaining challenges. Winning teams in each challenge will be announced as part of the next challenge launch with all winners announced during New England Awards Week from May 9-13.
