Mount Paran Christian School will host the 2020 Western Georgia FIRST Tech Challenge League Tournament in the school’s Hughes Gymnasium on Saturday.
Thirty teams from western and northwestern Georgia, including the Etowah and Douglasville leagues, will participate in the free robotics tournament.
Explosive growth in the number of FIRST Tech Challenge teams in Georgia the last two seasons precipitated changes in the pathway to the Georgia State Championship. The teams were geographically districted into leagues, which have been competing in division-level league meets from October through December. Now those leagues collide in a final League Tournament, a qualifying event to determine which teams will advance to the Georgia State Championship in February.
The FIRST Tech Challenge is a widely-accessible robotics program for grades 7 through 12 that promotes project-based learning.
