This year’s First Robotics competition, (2019-2020), continues its space theme from last year’s Destination: Deep Space by introducing, Infinite Recharge. Partnering with Lucasfilms as part of its Star Wars: Force For Change initiative, the competition is set in FirstCity, threatened by distant, incoming asteroids. Each Alliance, with their trusty droids, are raced to power their Shield Generators by collecting and scoring power cells (balls). An alliance will advance other stages, which will strengthen their overall score, after they reach a specific amount of points. Near the end of the match, the droids are tasked with hanging on the Shield Generator hanger, which will set their generator in motion, protecting FirstCity from the terrifying asteroids in a galaxy far far away.
