The CV Bears robotics team from Central Valley High School will participated in the FIRST Robotics Ellingsburg Regional March 21-23, 2013 at Central Washington University in Ellingsburg, WA. The robot, BearBot VI will be constructed in 6 weeks after school and weekends from January 5 to February 19, 2013. 

The USFirst Ellingsburg Regional Competition will be free to spectators.  They can view the game or walk in the robot construction pit area.

We will be taking a bus and staying in Ellingsburg Thursday, and Friday nights.  Students will be responsible for paying for the hotel room this year.  We will be looking for fund raising opportunities for students that need to raise the money for the trip.

So far, there are 48 schools signed up for this contest.
