Microchip Technology, supplier of microcontroller, analog, and Flash-IP solutions, announced the results of the 2012 First Robotics Competition (FRC) Arizona Regional held March 23-24 in Chandler.

Phoenix's Carl Hayden High School, Chandler's Seton Catholic High School, and Toronto, Canada's Crescent School qualified to compete in the 2012 First Robotics Competition Championship, April 26-28 in St. Louis, MO. Phoenix's Cactus High School, Scottsdale's Saguaro High School, and Flagstaff's Coconino High School were Regional Finalists.

Students had six weeks to build a robot capable of competing in this year's competition. The competition is based on a game called Rebound Rumble, where teams joined forces in driving their robots to shoot as many basketballs as possible into hoops throughout several two-minute, 15-second matches. Any student participating on a First team is eligible to apply for more than $14 million in scholarships.
