  • Materials & Equipment (past & present)

    This is my first year in FIRST. I was not really prepared with assocaited materials, parts, equipment, etc. Are there materials & equipment that has been used in past challenges and has been repeated. What are some items, materials and equipment that you would suggest to better prepare myself and my students? Does the foam square puzzle mats used every year? Is challenge course same every year? Is course frame/wall used every year? How about raquet balls, bowling balls, crates, etc?

    Does the foam square puzzle mats used every year?
    Yes.
    Is challenge course same every year?
    No.
    Is course frame/wall used every year?
    Yes, although I think this year's version is updated, but old ones are still allowed (not official).
    How about raquet balls, bowling balls, crates, etc?
    Different every year. FIRST is really good at finding random common things to make their games out of.
