The last day of the event took its course over eight hours, while we were there to cover all of it, here we have trimmed out all of the excess and timeouts, now includes local area teams interviews, qualification highlights, the complete playoff, district final, and the award ceremony. We added extra camera angles and other improvements, also where you can see the faces of every award recipients.

The FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) is an international high school robotics competition. Each year, teams of high school students, coaches, and mentors work during a six-week period to build robots capable of competing in that year's game. Robots complete tasks such as scoring balls into goals, placing inner tubes onto racks, hanging on bars, and balancing robots on balance beams. This year's mission is called Rapid React.

 Also available on our ROKU and Fire TV channels.
